U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
Office of the Spokesperson
For Immediate Release
April 16, 2020
Release of U.S. Government Action Plan to Support the
International Response to COVID-19
Excerpt from the Plan:
The SAFER package is part of an All-of-America approach, leveraging the unique expertise, capacities, and mechanisms of various U.S. government departments and agencies to rapidly deploy and deliver essential support when, where, and to whom it is most critically needed. The focus is to: (1) Save lives by improving countries’ and international partners’ ability to respond to the pandemic; (2) Reduce secondary impacts of the pandemic; (3) Promote U.S. leadership and share U.S. expertise for global benefit. The United States is a leader in this worldwide fight to slow the spread of the virus, but it will take global coordination involving governments, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, civil society (including faith-based organizations), the private sector, communities, and individuals to ensure that, through collective actions, we can achieve the maximum effectiveness and efficiency of our resources and response effort. We are prepared to help our international partners combat COVID-19 and will do all we can to ensure a world SAFER and more secure from infectious disease threats, now and in the future.
