COVID-19 Resource Compendium

The COVID-19 Resource Compendium is a joint effort between the IFRC and Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC), with support from throughout the RCRC Movement including reference centres, regional offices, national societies, ICRC, and others.

This compendium offers a comprehensive, dynamic, and evolving list of resources positioned to support Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The resources include help desks, guidance documents, frequently asked questions pages, and other COVID-19 related documents.

The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement hosts additional valuable guidance and resources relating to the COVID-19 pandemic at the following sites:


FedNet is the extranet of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (Federation), a platform where we can work, collaborate, communicate and inform about the activities of the Federation, its member National Societies and the Secretariat. Note: access to FedNet requires an approved login. 


IFRC GO aims to make all disaster information universally accessible and useful to IFRC responders for better decision making. IFRC GO is an online platform for emergency monitoring and response tracking. It combines real-time field information with secondary data and available response capacity information.


This global space allows Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers and staff to discuss in forums; share experiences and National Societies-developed approaches; reflect on lessons learned; post questions, and access existing official guidelines and tools from existing IFRC websites.

Learning Platform

An online learning community for National Society volunteers and staff, as well as partners and the general public. It delivers free, high-quality, multilingual RCRC and other learning opportunities to support the personal and professional development of volunteers and staff.
