In response to the Covid-19 crisis, IDC initiated regional webinars for our members in Africa, MENA, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas. These webinars were attended by 135 participants across more than 40 countries. Through this process, IDC heard about the impacts and needs on the ground from organisations working at the forefront of Covid-19 response around the globe.
With this in mind, IDC developed a broad based Global Covid-19 Policy Position that is grounded in the impacts, needs, and realities of our members worldwide. IDC will focus our Covid-19 response efforts within this position, using approaches tailored to context, including advocacy, government guidance, resource development, and campaign and member support.
