As the crisis continues in India and South Asia, the Bay Area Global Health Alliance is working to identify the best ways institutions and individuals can support existing and effective responses, in line with India’s foreign contributions laws, and to mobilize the Bay Area into action.

On Wednesday, May 5, at 8am PST, the Bay Area Global Health Alliance convened members and regional stakeholders together for an emergency briefing. The purpose was to: get real time information from on the ground in India; and identify the most effective emergency responses currently being undertaken, that the Bay Area, through our Alliance members and the community more broadly, can support.

The Alliance will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide regular updates to members. Many members — including PATH, PHI, Google, Facebook, Americares, UCSF and UNICEF — are already working with their partners and affiliates to support emergency responses to India’s COVID crisis. The Alliance is also polling its members to produce a comprehensive overview of the actions taken by our members.
