Crown Agents is launching the Crown Agents COVID-19 Response Fund to ask Philanthropists and Foundations to provide the vital funding needed to enable us to assist the most vulnerable countries and populations where resources are limited and health systems already severely strained.

With decades of experience working alongside low and middle income governments, we bring:

  • A portfolio of existing at-scale health and humanitarian programmes which are pivoting to respond to the crisis
  • Market leading specialist capabilities in procurement, logistics and inspections essential for responding to countries’ immediate needs
  • Deep knowledge and insight around health systems strengthening and broader public sector management that will be critical to addressing the longer term impacts and ‘building back better’ from COVID-19
