U.S. Covid-19

Former Initiative


Since 2020, we’ve championed a comprehensive Covid-19 national response and recovery plan, focusing our efforts on providing evidence-based information and equitable access to life-saving tools.

We committed over $1 billion to Covid-19 response efforts over the first three years to achieve the three goals:

  • accelerate the global response to this pandemic and prevent the next one;
  • fight the existing and emerging crisis of hunger and malnutrition in the United States and around the world; and
  • help workers, families, and vulnerable communities get through the pandemic and emerge with greater opportunity than they had before.

This included a National Testing Action Plan that aimed to create a state-led national program of Covid-19 testing that would support the reopening of the economy through the goals of workforce monitoring, early detection of recurrent outbreaks, and diagnostic and home testing.

Why it matters

In the United States, our investments in health successfully provided leading health professionals and policymakers with science-based tools and approaches to fight the pandemic and prevent future outbreaks
