START FUND COVID-19 UPDATE – 3RD EDITION
17 February 2021
This document shares updates from Start Fund COVID-19 projects being implemented by members from all across Start Network. This third edition includes short case studies from responses in Nigeria, Mozambique, Togo, Ethiopia, Uganda, and the Republic of Congo.
Start Fund COVID-19 is part of Start Network’s existing funding mechanism, the Start Fund, and provides rapid funding for small to medium responses at the local level, to address neglected or underfunded aspects of the broader COVID-19 pandemic, with a focus on neglected communities and geographies, as well as early action and anticipation. Key informant interviews were conducted with six members that were part of the third call for alerts between 11-15 January 2021.
