MAY 2020: RBF for Health Projects 
View this email in your browser
The effects of the current COVID-19 pandemic are being felt throughout the world economy, exposing the limited capacity of many countries’ healthcare systems. A robust health sector that meets basic needs is more critical than ever and is directly linked to an economy’s well-being.

Those most harshly affected during a crisis are the poor, who suffer disproportionately greater disruptions in their attempt to survive, even under normal circumstances. GPRBA is committed to supporting low-income and vulnerable communities; especially during the COVID-19 crisis. We need to support recovery efforts to build resilience and sustainable, high-quality health care services for those most in need.
