Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Pandemic Response: Quick Reference Guidance for National Societies

National Societies’ and volunteers’ roles will change through the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic in their respective countries/communities, based on which public health, clinical and health systems activities are likely to be most impactful. National Societies must work with their public authorities so that both governments and NS understand their respective mandates and the roles the NS is technically and organisationally able to take on. NS must be prepared to change their operations over time to continue in their auxiliary role; as the outbreak progresses, the gaps and needs for effective outbreak response measures may change.
