Funds will be split evenly between three nonprofit organizations.
Funds raised by the CDC Foundation through their Emergency Response Fund will be used to meet fast-emerging needs identified by CDC to help respond to the public health threat posed by this virus.
International Medical Corps is taking an agency-wide approach to their response, providing their 7,000+ staff members in more than 30 countries with clinical guidance and planning documents designed to help them screen patients, enhance infection prevention and control (IPC), and protect health providers.
Direct Relief is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses to provide personal protective equipment and other items to health workers responding to coronavirus.
Together, we can truly make a lifesaving difference for those affected by coronavirus - not just in our local communities, but across our nation and around the world.
