UN Volunteers are among the first responders to the COVID-19 outbreak. They play a pivotal role in stopping the spread of COVID-19 as public health officers, doctors, emergency staff and community workers. Their efforts to leave no one behind contribute significantly to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, several UN Volunteers have been deployed with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, International Organization for Migration and UN Resident Coordinator’s Office in Sri Lanka, in support of COVID-19 response. UN Volunteer Dr Anjalee De Silva, serving with WHO, has been contributing to planning, coordinating and monitoring the COVID-19 response as Public Health Officer. Further UN Volunteers have helped or have been helping in mitigating COVID-19 risks and accelerating recovery in a wide range of areas, including promoting safety measures, supply of PPE items, research on COVID-19 socio-economic impact, raising awareness of initiatives to assist migrant returnees affected by COVID-19.
