United Nations comprehensive response to COVID-19: Saving lives, protecting societies, recovering better

Source(s):  United Nations - Headquarters (UN)

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has swiftly taken hundreds of thousands of lives, infected millions of people, upended the global economy and caused pervasive fear for the future. Equipped with months of experience, best practices and valuable lessons, the United Nations (UN) issue this comprehensive overview of the UN response in its entirety to date.

The overview recounts the UN's key guidance, lessons and support so far – and points the way to the crucial steps that must follow to save lives, protect societies and recover better. It amounts to a recipe for a comprehensive response to and recovery from COVID-19 that will leave no one behind and address the very fragilities and gaps that made us so vulnerable to the pandemic in the first place. It also points the way toward building resilience to future shocks – above all from climate change – and toward overcoming the severe and systemic inequalities that have been so tragically exposed by the pandemic.
