FHI 360 has been responding to the COVID-19 pandemic since its earliest days. We have used data-driven strategies and implementation expertise to develop solutions that can control this pandemic — and prevent the next one. We have supported pandemic preparedness and COVID-19 response work in more than 60 countries, with a focus on improving health interventions by applying the “prevent, detect and respond” framework of the Global Health Security Agenda.
We help our partners improve access to quality COVID-19 clinical care at all levels of the health system. To improve health systems and address the specific needs of each country, we provide support for COVID vaccination, testing and treatment, clinical and nonclinical capacity building, and workforce development interventions.
To ensure hospitals have medical oxygen available when their patients need it, we have strengthened medical oxygen ecosystems in more than 50 national hospitals across three continents. We have developed clinical resources, job aids, and innovative in-person and distance learning opportunities to train more than 20,000 health care workers who are on the front lines of the pandemic.
As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, FHI 360 continues to work with our partners to respond to current needs and reinforce readiness for future global health threats. We partner with governments, health facility leaders, the private sector, national laboratories, academic partners, professional associations, and civil society and community-based organizations to support national and global COVID-19 responses.
We research and apply the latest scientific breakthroughs to improve epidemic and pandemic prevention, preparedness, detection and response. This expertise, combined with our global network of partners and staff, makes us uniquely positioned to support the COVID-19 response and global health security.
FHI 360 supports national COVID-19 response in more than 60 countries through several projects, including (but not limited to) the following:
