UNDP Thailand COVID-19 Country Response
Apr 13, 2020
The world is confronted with a crisis unlike any other, affecting everyone with dramatic health, societal and economic consequences and threatening the progress made against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The COVID-19 pandemic calls for a multi-sectoral and whole-of-society response to efficiently mitigate the impact on people globally and in Thailand, and safeguard results made towards the SDGs.
The United Nations, underlining the world’s shared responsibility to address the crisis, is calling for global solidarity to stop the pandemic.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has developed a response framed around three objectives: help countries to prepare for the pandemic, to respond to the pandemic and to recover from its multi-sector impacts. This requires a simultaneous effort as these objectives are strongly inter-linked.
