Global Links Response to Coronavirus COVID-19

Global Links encourages you to follow public health agency updates from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for accurate and up-to-date information on the COVID-19 virus. This page from WHO has information on busting myths about the disease. We continue to monitor the rapidly changing situation with health authorities.

We are a 4,000+ volunteer family and we are taking extra steps to disinfect our facility and encourage everyone to wash hands frequently. In consideration of the many older adults and others visiting our space, we are asking volunteers to stay home if you have any signs of a cold or cough, and we look forward to welcoming you again when you are well.

Our international program team is working with the Pan American Health Organization/WHO to support and protect healthcare workers during this pandemic and other epidemics confronting the region. For 30 years we have been working to strengthen public health systems in resource poor communities and to provide healthcare workers with the materials they need to provide quality care.
