Why support CARE India in response to COVID-19?

CARE is quickly mounting a global response to the COVID-19 pandemic – which threatens to overwhelm healthcare resources, particularly in countries with weak public health infrastructures.​

​We are building on our past experience responding to outbreaks of infectious disease in vulnerable communities – taking particular note that emergencies, including health crises, tend to disproportionately affect women & girls.​

CARE benefits from strong relationships with national and local authorities in the 100 countries where we work, longstanding community links, and decades of experience in health interventions. Our response to the Ebola virus epidemic, among others, serves as a model for how CARE supports community preparedness and prevention during serious public health emergencies​
