Denmarks efforts against COVID-19 in developing countries

Coronavirus is spreading all over the world - also to the world’s poorest countries and refugee camps.

In poor, densely populated areas, and in countries with weak health care systems, the coronavirus outbreak can have severe consequences. Denmark has taken a series of concrete actions by mobilising a massive support package and targeted activities to fight the spread of coronavirus and to mitigate the worst consequences of the pandemic in particular in Africa and the Neighbourhood.

Here you can find resources and links to Denmark’s response to COVID-19 in developing countries and humanitarian hotspots.
