UN Comprehensive Response to COVID-19: Saving Lives, Protecting Societies, Recovering better (Third Edition)
The UN Secretary-General has launched the 2021 update of the UN Comprehensive Response to COVID-19 (Saving Lives, Protecting Societies, Recovering Better). It provides an update to the first and second editions of the report, released in June and September 2020, respectively.
The Response sets out what we can and must do to:
Deliver a global response that leaves no-one behind
Reduce our vulnerability to future pandemics
Build resilience to future shocks – above all climate change
Overcome the severe and systemic inequalities exposed by the pandemic.
The Response promotes three pillars of operation:
Delivery of a large-scale, coordinated and comprehensive health response
Adoption of policies that address the devastating socioeconomic, humanitarian and human rights aspects of the crisis
