CDC COVID-19 Global Response

Global Response Program Overview

CDC’s global response to the COVID-19 pandemic is supported in part by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act 2020 (Public Law 116-123external icon), the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act 2020 (Public Law 116-136external icon), and the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act 2021 (Public Law 117-2external icon).

From the beginning of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC leveraged decades-long partnerships with ministries of health and existing CDC global programmatic assets on the ground to immediately mobilize technical assistance and support at the country level. These include previous investments in global health security and programs such as the President’s Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), polio eradication, preparations for influenza and other pandemic diseases, and outbreak response.

CDC is leveraging preparedness, response, and capacity investments to ensure quick access to response funds at the community level, while assessing the needs of countries, regions, and U.S.-based efforts to respond effectively as the pandemic evolves. CDC monitors the COVID-19 pandemic and directs resources based on changes to the disease epidemiology, response requirements, and opportunities to better understand the evolving virus.
