An effective national response to COVID-19 requires collective efforts by the global community, multi-sectoral coordination at the national level, development partners, and other entities. The Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) consortium is well positioned to support the Royal Thai Government (RTG), community partners, and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. This provides support to strengthen the Thailand Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), provincial, and community capacity to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and mitigate its impacts on morbidity and mortality. Two key objectives are (1) accelerating widespread and equitable access to and delivery of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccinations; and (2) reducing morbidity and mortality from COVID-19, mitigate transmission, and strengthen health systems, including to prevent, detect, and respond to pandemic threats.
