AKDN’s response during the novel coronavirus

13 October 2020

While tracking the pandemic locally and globally in February and March, several AKDN agencies such as the Aga Khan Health Services, the Aga Khan University and the Aga Khan Foundation engaged with national Ministries of Health to help raise funds for country-specific Covid-19 preparedness plans. By mid-March, an AKDN Covid-19 Taskforce was set up to mount a robust response to the pandemic across all agencies and the Imamat. The AKDN response ranged from front-line health workers treating patients and testing suspected cases to construction of additional health facilities to advising national authorities on their country’s response and preparedness.
