COVID-19 Response & Relief

India, the largest democracy in the world, is facing an unprecedented second wave of COVID-19. Currently, 350,000+ infections are being reported per day, and there are shortages of a wide variety of critical resources such as oxygen, healthcare facilities, and access to rapid testing. Additionally, compounding factors such as misinformation and hesitation around the COVID-19 vaccine, lack of awareness of COVID-19 disease progression, and dwindling non-medical resources are only adding to the overburdened healthcare system.

Based on the needs identified by our partners on the ground, the Johns Hopkins India Institute COVID-19 Task Force (JHII CTF) was formed to raise awareness, respond to current needs, and coordinate activities, services, and opportunities to address the COVID-19 pandemic in India alongside our partners.
