Support our healthcare workers
One World: Together At Home is not a telethon – it is a historic, first-of-its-kind global broadcast event to celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers, and to support the World Health Organisation in the global fight to end COVID-19. The broadcast will feature stories from frontline healthcare workers on the COVID response, commitments from philanthropists, governments and corporations to support and equip frontline healthcare workers around the world with masks, gowns and other vital equipment, and to local charities that provide food, shelter and healthcare to those who need it most.
