After the outbreak of COVID-19, healthcare providers have felt the impact of the pandemic. Severe shortages in supplies, an increased demand for care, and in some cases overworked staff, have put healthcare systems under immense strain. To ensure that these vital services are able to respond to the needs of the public, many governments have committed emergency funding to bolster these services. These funds are designed to provide relief to the healthcare sector for the provision of protective equipment, increased staff capacity, and other associated costs of managing the pandemic. These funds are a critical part of any public response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring that both patients and healthcare staff have access to the resources they need to stay safe.
