Join us on the Path Forward
Ensuring Fast and Fair Vaccine Delivery Worldwide
It will be a historic undertaking to make sure COVID-19 vaccines reach the most vulnerable populations—frontline health workers, women and girls, refugees, and migrants. CARE is rising to the challenge: our goal is to directly reach 60 million of the most marginalized to ensure fast and fair vaccine access. This includes ensuring that more than 275,000 health care providers and frontline workers, nearly 70% of whom are women and often overlooked, are vaccinated. We will reach an additional 40 million through our education campaign to overcome vaccine hesitation—combating mistrust and misinformation in communities where stigma exists.
We have begun working with our country offices to realize the vision behind CARE’s Vaccine Initiative—looking at everything from upgrading digital support for health workers and health systems to providing training on infection prevention and control, as well as advocating to influence policy at all levels to achieve equitable vaccine availability and distribution for all.
Expanding Our U.S. Crisis Response
In the face of growing poverty and inequality in the U.S., CARE will continue to expand our work, bringing the best of what we’ve learned around the world to fight poverty and injustice at home. Over the next three years, our goal is to sustainably reduce poverty with proven programming—starting with CARE Package Relief and Community Savings & Loan Associations, which we will expand to key cities to foster more savings and reduce dependence on harmful payday loans. Our vision is to create a U.S.-based micro-savings model that can be scaled and replicated by other organizations in any targeted community where the need is great. As in all of CARE’s work, we will apply a strong social justice lens and focus on historically marginalized groups with an emphasis on Black, indigenous, and other women of color who are one financial shock away from slipping into deep poverty.
We Cannot Do This Without You
The global COVID-19 pandemic represents an all-hands-on-deck moment for humanity. CARE is determined to ensure that the world’s most vulnerable people are not forgotten in prevention, vaccination, and economic recovery efforts. We cannot do this without you—please join CARE now in fighting alongside women and girls to build back a stronger, more equitable future for all.
