In 2020, NATO established a Pandemic Response Trust Fund that maintains a stockpile of medical equipment and supplies to be able to provide immediate relief to Allies or partners in need. Since the establishment of the Pandemic Response Trust Fund, NATO’s Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre has provided COVID-19 assistance to four Allies and seven partner nations. This has contributed to enhancing the preparedness and resilience of national health systems during several recurring waves of the pandemic.
This recent delivery complements a donation to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine consisting of 10 tons of personal protective equipment, including surgical masks, face shields, gloves, isolation gowns and hooded coveralls in September 2021. Allies have also previously donated 40,000 litres of surface disinfectants and 10 ventilators to Ukraine from the NATO Pandemic Response Trust Fund and Stockpile.
