IOM West and Central Africa Regional Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan COVID-19

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in West and Central Africa called on its partners and the donor community to support its USD 54,158,500 Regional Preparedness and Response Plan to strengthen resilience among nearly ten million migrants and other mobile populations significantly affected by COVID-19. With the severe mobility, health and socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis reverberating across West and Central Africa, rapid, targeted action is needed to prevent further spread of the pandemic. Given the region's fragile health systems, such action is crucial to mitigate the crisis' impact on migrants, displaced persons, refugees and other vulnerable populations.
