About This Fund

The COVID-19 Action Fund for Africa is an action-oriented collaborative dedicated to protecting Community Health Workers on the frontlines of Africa’s COVID-19 response. The collaborative seeks to raise up to $100M to supply PPE to CHWs in as many as 24 African countries for approximately one year.

Key objectives:
