The press attaché at the US Embassy in Morocco, Jerome Sherman, recently revealed that the US Agency for International Development will provide additional financial support to the Moroccan Ministry of Health to assist in the anti Covid-19 vaccination campaign.

According to Sherman, the agency will provide 2.5 million dollars, equivalent to 22.4 million dirhams, to its partners in Morocco in order to support the vaccination campaign, as part of the cooperation between the two countries regarding the provision of the American “Johnson & Johnson” vaccine.

US President Joe Biden announced that the United States intends to provide two billion dollars to the “Gavi COVAX” vaccine alliance, to support its efforts to help middle-income countries obtain vaccines.

In the coming weeks, Morocco is expected to receive its share of vaccines, which according to a list drawn up by the World Health Organization, is estimated at 1.88 million doses.

In the same context, the US government, through the agency, has invested more than 10.7 million dollars in response to the Covid-19 pandemic in Morocco.

Moreover, the agency’s partners, including the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the International Federation of the Red Cross, are working under the leadership of the US Ministry of Health to raise awareness about the Covid-19 pandemic, train health professionals, and provide hygiene materials and medical laboratory equipment, noting that the US Department of State and Department of Defense have worked to provide protective equipment for Moroccan national laboratories.
