Unitaid and COVID-19

Updates and resources on the pandemic

Unitaid responds

Unitaid has moved quickly to reshape its programs to contribute to the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Working with its partners, Unitaid has identified opportunities to collaborate for impact on fast molecular tests, clinical trials of medicines and vital devices to check patients’ oxygen levels.

New opportunities are continually being explored to ensure that the needs of the most vulnerable populations are being addressed in a way that is fair and timely.

This page gives details of the different interventions that Unitaid is making to support the global efforts.
