Coronavirus Global Response Online Pledging Event

04/05/2020 - 11:04

Joining Forces to Accelerate the Development, Production and Equitable Access to COVID-19 Vaccines, Diagnostics and Therapeutics

On Monday 4 May, the European Commission will host the Coronavirus Global Response pledging event.

The global coronavirus pandemic requires a global response. The world quickly needs to develop and deploy effective diagnostics, treatments and a vaccine. Without them, every country in the world remains vulnerable. Countries and organisations around the world are joining forces to ensure that not only do we develop these life-saving tools but that we ensure they are universally available and affordable. No person, country or region should be left behind.

The European Union and its partners are hosting an international pledging conference starting on Monday 4 May 2020 where we aim to raise €7.5 billion in initial funding to kick-start the global cooperation.

The pledging conference will be streamed via our Europe by Satellite service from 15:00 CET.

It will also be streamed on the Coronavirus Global Response website.
