8 Countries Join the Virtual Collaborative on National Coordination of a Multi-sectoral and Multi-level Pandemic Response

Bahrain, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Mongolia, Nigeria, and Senegal will participate in a 6-month virtual collaborative focused on strengthening the leadership capacities and functions needed to ensure strong cross-sectoral and multi-level coordination to manage major health and socio-economic threats, such as COVID-19. The collaborative will also focus on building the foundation of more resilient and responsive health systems for the future.

Each country has assembled a strong multi-sectoral team with a diverse profile of participants drawn from national epidemic/pandemic response coordination units, representation from Ministries of Health, Education, Finance Transport, Aviation and Tourism, and sub-national levels of government.

Technical facilitators will work with collaborative participants to distill and synthesize best practice and guidance on multi-sectoral, multi-level strategies for pandemic preparedness, within the overall framework of improving stewardship and the institutional architecture to achieve universal health coverage.
