UNFPA Global Response Plan for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Pandemic

The UNFPA Global Response Plan (published in April 2020) is fully aligned to and part of the UN Secretary-General’s three-step plan to respond to the devastating socioeconomic impacts of COVID-19. UNFPA’s plan complements the WHO COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan.

At the global and regional levels, UNFPA is part of the coordinated UN response under the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) COVID-19 Global Humanitarian Response Plan.

At the country level, UNFPA works within UN country teams under the leadership of the UN Resident/Humanitarian Coordinator and designated COVID-19 Outbreak Coordinator.

Under the IASC cluster system, UNFPA leads coordination of the gender-based violence area of responsibility within the protection cluster.
