Since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, the United Nations has been advocating for a large-scale, coordinated and comprehensive health response. Through its Special Voluntary Fund (SVF),* UNV has deployed 126 UN Volunteers worldwide since early 2020 to date in different sectors, to assist countries in the fight against COVID-19. Some of these serve as Public Health Officers with the World Health Organization and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) to reinforce health systems and capacities.
