COVID-19 Response in Bosnia and Herzegovina – 2020 Activity Report

COVID-19 Response in Bosnia and Herzegovina – 2020 Activity Report

February 26, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic was a test to cooperation and partnerships and showed, more starkly than ever, how we must respond collectively and in new, more flexible ways to complex and unprecedented global challenges.

UNDP's work and the results achieved were made possible by the strong partnerships with international organisations and domestic institutions with a shared goal in mind: to save and protect the lives of all people in country.

In 2020, UNDP managed to procure and by 31 December deliver more than 9.1 million items of essential life-saving medical equipment and supplies, funded by 15 domestic and international partners. In parallel to supporting the response of the health systems, UNDP contributed to crisis management and coordination, understanding the socioeconomic impact and supported business continuity and job retention.

This report aims:

  • To pull together and share with partners and beneficiaries a holistic picture on the activities realized in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • To recognize the critical role of international and domestic partners in the COVID-19 response; and
  • To share some lessons learnt.
