U.S. to allocate $ 1.1 million to Armenia to help fight COVID-19

U.S. to allocate $ 1.1 million to Armenia to help fight COVID-19

ArmInfo. The ANCA welcomed confirmation, shared today with the ANCA by the State Department, that the global U.S. COVID-19 emergency aid package - which will  provide $274 million in resources to 64 of the world's most at-risk  countries will include $1.1 million for Armenia. ArmInfo was informed  about this in the press service of the Armenian National Committee of  America.  

"We welcome this first round of additional U.S. healthcare  resources for Armenia related to the COVID-19 pandemic," said ANCA  Chairman Raffi Hamparian.  "The ANCA encourages the immediate  reprogramming of funds already appropriated by Congress for Armenia  to help meet this crisis.  As we have been from the beginning of this  global pandemic, we will remain engaged with Executive and  Legislative branch leaders to support joint U.S.-Armenia efforts to  contain COVID-19 and to care for those suffering from this virus." 

Earlier this week, ANCA Chairman Raffi Hamparian encouraged U.S.  Ambassador to Armenia Lynne Tracy "to ensure that needed U.S. foreign  assistance resources are directed to help Armenia deal with this  health emergency, in cooperation with Armenia's Ministry of Health  and in support of other public health stakeholders, such as the  American University of Armenia's Center for Health Services Research  and social service organizations like the Armenian Relief Society."   Hamparian's March 24th letter to Ambassador Tracy went on to note  that "Funds appropriated by Congress can play a vital role at this  crucial moment, as can U.S. technical assistance in public health  reporting, data collection, and capacity building." 

  The additional U.S. health assistance will help Armenia prepare  laboratory systems, activate case finding and event-based  surveillance, support technical experts for response and  preparedness, and bolster risk communication.
