WCARO COVID-19 SitRep #5

The UNFPA response in the region aligns with the 2030 Agenda, WHO global strategic preparedness and response
plan, UN-coordinated global humanitarian response plan, the UN framework for socio-economic response to
COVID-19, and the UNFPA COVID-19 global response plan.

UNFPA chaired its last weekly meeting of the Regional UN Sustainable Development Group for West and Central
Africa. The UN Human Rights Office now chairs the weekly meetings of the Regional Directors Group aimed at
coordinating UN response to the pandemic. The health, humanitarian and socio-economic challenges, brought about
by the pandemic, require solidarity for a global response.
