Will present top level findings on the impact of COVID-19 on Health from Alliance 2015, of which Concern is a member https://www.alliance2015.org/   This is a combined research of the 8 member organisations. The simultaneous surveys were conducted in 23 countries during Oct-Nov. 2020. Will then present on protecting Concern and Partner staff firstly, and on what we have changed up to now in our work to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19. Looking ahead, what we need to focus on in 2021, health system strengthening efforts, and supporting towards UHC and SDG3 delivery.

Ending with open Q&A.
