US to give K13 million for Covid-19


THE United States (US) government, through the US Agency for International Development (USAID), has announced a funding of US$3.8 million (K13.31 million) urgent Coronavirus (Covid-19) assistance for Papua New Guinea as a part of the American Rescue Plan Act.
The US Embassy, in a statement, said the assistance would help accelerate widespread and equitable access to and delivery of safe and effective Covid-19 vaccines, strengthen health systems and support other public health measures to prevent the spread of the virus and recent emergence of the Delta variant in Papua New Guinea.
“Papua New Guinea is working hard to address the challenges caused by the pandemic within its communities,” US ambassador to PNG, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu Erin McKee said.
“This assistance from the American people underscores our enduring partnership and commitment to combat this unprecedented global health crisis together.”
