What we do
The WHO Foundation Is Investing in a Safer and Healthier World for Future Generations
The Health Emergencies Alliance (HEA) is a novel and timely membership community that supports WHO’s emergency preparedness and response work, and focuses on agile and collaborative solutions. HEA partners play a key role in providing predictable and reliable funding for health emergencies by supporting WHO’s Global Health Emergency Appeal for 54 ongoing emergencies and WHO’s Contingency Fund for Emergencies.

As part of this plan, the Solidarity Response Fund (SRF) was developed, and powered by the WHO Foundation, in collaboration with the UN Foundation and a global network of fiduciary partners, to support the work of WHO and its partners to quickly and effectively respond to COVID-19 outbreaks all over the world.
Donations to the fund enabled vital work to suppress transmission, reduce exposure,
counter misinformation, protect the vulnerable, reduce mortality and morbidity, and accelerate
equitable access to new COVID-19 tools. Some of the donations have supported additional Fund partners including the: African Union/African CDC, the Big 6 Youth Organizations, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), the World Food Programme (WFP).
Our Campaigns & Appeals
We enable the private sector and civil society to tackle global issues and challenges together. We’ve clearly seen the power of collective response through two international fundraising campaigns launched in 2020-2021 with the WHO Foundation to power WHO’s work on the ground. In total, the Solidarity Response Fund (SRF), and Go Give One (GG1) campaigns raised more than US$ 260 million from the private sector to actively support the work of WHO and its partners in the fight against COVID-19. Together with WHO, the WHO Foundation will continue to launch campaigns and appeals tackle global health challenges with a coordinated, multi-sector approach.
