The United States is committed to supporting The Gambia’s efforts to combat COVID-19 and keep Gambians throughout the Smiling Coast safe. The U.S. Government is working closely with the government of The Gambia, civil society, and community leaders to combat the pandemic. This assistance builds on long term U.S. Government support, which totals approximately $3 million (GMD 150 Million) this year.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) committed $310,000 (GMD15.5 Million) to assist The Gambia in its efforts to slow the COVID-19 outbreak and promote citizen accountability in executing the local response. These additional funds will raise public awareness and promote transparency around the COVID-19 response through television and radio broadcasts, a nationwide public awareness campaign on prevention, support to follow the Money to track funds and program implementation related to COVID-19, and support to an online fact-checking platform to counter disinformation about COVID-19.
