MERCY MALAYSIA’S COVID-19 STRATEGIC PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE PLAN

19 March 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic was confirmed to have spread to Malaysia on 25 January 2020. Following the spike of cases in March, the government of Malaysia and the Ministry of Health (MOH) are focusing on mitigation measures to curb the further growth of positive cases in the country through social distancing and movement control order (MCO). 


Following the strained healthcare system due to the increasing number of infections by the virus, MERCY Malaysia launched its COVID-19 Pandemic Fund to supporting medical services and the essential needs of marginalised groups within the country. 


This dedicated fund is to implement the COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan - a plan for humanitarian assistance to be delivered within a continuous cycle of total disaster risk management that focuses on prevention; preparedness; response; and recovery. All aid assistance and deliverables are coordinated with MOH and the National Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC), and the National Agency for Disaster Management (NADMA).
