from ACW to ICVA

Focus areas

NGOs are widely recognised as key actors in an effective and efficient emergency response, because they are frontline implementers for the majority of humanitarian operations. Humanitarian response to larger disasters is usually subject to an international coordination system often led by UN agencies. The complexity of the international system and the large number of organisations that can be involved challenge how the different humanitarian actors work together during international response efforts.

The ICVA COVID-19 Statement issued 17th March 2020 sets the priorities for ICVA in its engagement in preparedness and response to COVID-19.

NGOs are critical to the delivery of effective, principled humanitarian assistance. We witness the needs. We implement the majority of projects.

This can only be done with true global support translated into solidarity in delivering principled humanitarian assistance.

NGOS vaccine
Description

As new waves of COVID-19 break out around the world, some countries have now procured COVID19 vaccines. However, they remain in acute short supply.

Description

NGO Open Letter calling on States to step up multilateral efforts and lead a truly global response. It is in our common interest to ensure that priority in access to vaccine at a global level is given to those at a higher risk of infection and/or developing serious disease. Other priority considerations at national and global level will be counterproductive, leading to a perpetual spiral of new, vaccine-resistant variants of the virus.
