Our Response

On January 30, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus (COVID -19) outbreak an international public health emergency. The virus was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and continues to expand in more than 80 countries. 

A shortage of personal protective equipment and other supplies needed to combat the spread of the illness, along with a reduction in commercial flights to the most heavily impacted areas, are causing constraints for responding organizations. 

Airlink is working with more than 15 nonprofit partners and several airlines to support response efforts by arranging transport of supplies, facilitate collaborative programming and procurement, and foster information sharing.
