COVID-19 Emergency Action Fund

Global Emergency Care has launched the Emergency Action Fund in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Now, more than ever, your support of GEC is critical. While COVID-19 has been slow to arrive in Africa, or at least has been slow to be detected there, Uganda and other African countries are bracing for exponential contagious spread.

Our Emergency Care Practitioners (ECPs) are some of the only specialist emergency care providers in Uganda and are the most equipped to deal with the COVID-19 crisis there. They are on the front lines of this pandemic as it spreads across Uganda, and are the communities’ best hope for triaging COVID-19 symptoms and providing research-based public health education to a population already receiving misinformation and experiencing fear.

To respond to this crisis, we are launching the Emergency Action Fund in order to help Uganda respond to:

1) The local COVID-19 crisis;
2) The long-term surveillance of COVID-19 in the country; and
3) Other public health threats in the future.

But we can’t do this without you!

We urgently need your help. Gifts of all sizes are welcome.

Through this difficult time, our commitment to our ECPs, staff, their families, patients, partners, and emergency care development in Uganda is stronger than ever. Together, the actions we take can make a world of difference in the lives of so many.

​This year, we are encouraging supporters to join our Monthly Sustainers programBy joining, you will support our ongoing work and make giving easier. Learn more >>>
