European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen hosted today the Coronavirus Global Response International, an online pledging conference to raise an initial 7.5 billion euros to make up the global funding shortfall estimated by the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB) and others.
The initiative aims to bring together G20 leaders to develop a massive and co-ordinated response to the virus as well as supporting the call to action that the World Health Organization and other global health actors have made together.
EU Commission recently launched the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, a global cooperation platform to accelerate and scale-up research, development, access and equitable distribution of the vaccine and other life-saving therapeutics and diagnostics treatments. This laid the foundation for a real international alliance to fight COVID-19.
