The EU has mobilized €1 million in emergency aid from the Epidemics Tool to assist those affected by COVID-19 in Papua New Guinea. The number of cases has skyrocketed in the last month, pushing the country's already stretched health system to the limit. The funding will support the International Committee of the Red Cross to implement a six-month intervention focused on the most urgent needs such as increasing treatment capacity of public health care system, supporting local health authorities to scale up the response and providing assistance to vaccination campaigns. This emergency Epidemics Tool allows the EU to provide rapid funding in case of an epidemic outbreak in a humanitarian context.
