PAHO Health Emergency Appeal 2022
MetadataShow full item record
In recent past years, the countries of the Americas have been combatting COVID-19 while simultaneously addressing many ongoing and emerging health challenges. The pandemic remains an acute and evolving emergency with significant economic and social impact, which has disproportionate effects on population groups living in conditions of vulnerability. In the Region of the Americas, the pandemic occurs in a context of several underlying political, economic, social and health issues. This exposes and amplifies challenges in health inequities, including access to health services and continuity of care for acute and chronic conditions. Humanitarian situations in the Americas are complex and multifaceted. Threats affecting the lives and wellbeing of the Latin America and Caribbean population range from emerging and re-emerging infectious hazards to the ones generated by escalating climate risks, food insecurity and displacement. This document outlines the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) regional priorities for the year 2022 to sustain and scale-up health emergency and humanitarian assistance in the Americas, with particular focus on six priority countries currently facing prolonged humanitarian crisis and/or recovering from recent acute emergencies: Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras and Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of). It is aligned with and builds on the World Health Organizations's Global Health Emergency Appeal for 2022, its principles, priorities and strategies. PAHO's Health Emergency Appeal for 2022 targets approximately 13.4 million people in need of assistance across the Region. PAHO needs US$ 350.8 million in 2022 to help vulnerable individuals and communities recover from the impact of health emergencies and better protect them from existing and emerging health threats. This Appeal covers requirements to meet urgent health emergency and humanitarian needs in the Region of the Americas, including COVID-19 response efforts for 2022.
