The United States donation of 188,370 Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine doses has arrived in Mongolia. These donations through COVAX are part of that effort.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States has provided more than $4 million in support to Mongolia, including USAID’s delivery of 50 high-quality ventilators in December 2020 and follow-on training needed to treat critically ill patients. These ventilators provided valuable medical support as Mongolia navigated through its unfortunate surge in cases this year. USAID also supports risk communication campaigns, infection prevention and control efforts in health facility and school settings, and vaccine distribution assistance.
In addition, the United States has provided critical medical equipment for more than 570 medical facilities and helped train nearly 12,700 healthcare workers to conduct outbreak surveillance, use and manage U.S. government-donated medical equipment, and deliver quality care for COVID-19 patients.
The United States, as Mongolia’s “third neighbour”, will continue to support the health and wellbeing of the Mongolian people.
