EU Support to the United Nations ‘One UN Response Plan to COVID-19 in Nigeria’

The European Union (EU), as well as other donors, will support the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to implement a ‘One UN Response Plan to COVID-19 in Nigeria’, with the objective to ensuring optimum care of the confirmed COVID-19 cases and contain further spread of the outbreak through an inclusive and nationally-owned COVID-19 response from a shared vision and a common strategy, based on the best international practice of similar processes in other countries. Its purpose is to coordinate and align collective efforts in partnership with the government, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), private sector, international and national stakeholders with the aim to increase the availability, accessibility, affordability, adaptability and acceptability of COVID-19 response services in Nigeria. This is in recognition that a collaborative engagement is urgently required to amplify Government’s efforts to respond to COVID-19 given the multifaceted nature of the crisis and the potentially unprecedented implications to socioeconomic conditions in an already complex Humanitarian-Development-Peace (H-D-P) nexus context.
