PAHO Strategic Fund minimizes disruption of critical medications and supplies during COVID-19 World Health Organisation (WHO) "The COVID-19 pandemic rapidly disrupted freight movement, particularly by air, of essential health supplies, while nationally lockdowns disrupted pharmaceutical production.

The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) through the‘ Strategic Fund for Essential Medicines and Public Health Supplies’ responded quickly to minimize the impact by working with three key stake holdergroups regional and national health authorities, technical experts, and suppliers."
