The COVID-19 epidemic is affecting all continents. This global health crisis calls for a global, multilateral and coordinated response, as well as special assistance to the most fragile countries. France is committed to working alongside the Rome-based United Nations institutions to address the crisis.
Humanitarian operations aim to assist and protect vulnerable populations while answering to the fundamental needs (in food, water, shelter, medical care etc.) of the people directly affected by a conflict or natural disaster.
