Statement on Covid-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global health emergency that requires coordinated, effective action by governments, individuals, businesses and nonprofits.

Published 18/03/2020

Lack of access to healthcare and resources for those living in economic or social instability has been catastrophic. We urge all partners and friends to join forces, share resources and work across borders to make healthcare accessible to all. 

We stand in solidarity with all individuals and communities affected by COVID-19. Our gratitude goes out to all medical professionals and healthcare support workers for providing their valuable services. 

50by40 is enacting measures to protect the health and safety of our employees.

This emergency presents an unprecedented challenge for our organisations, governments and communities. However, it is still possible to make 2020 the first year in a decade of unprecedented advancement in rights-based societies, ecological resilience and food systems.

We remain committed to this work. We are all in this together.
