These materials were developed as part of READY’s COVID-19 Readiness Workshop Series, a succession of regional and national virtual workshops designed to strengthen NGO operational readiness for the COVID-19 response. We encourage you to use and adapt these tools for your own organization, even if you weren’t able to attend one of the workshops virtually.
In the sections below, you will find foundational presentations, interactive scenario-based exercises, and operational checklists to help organizations review and improve internal capacities, program adaptation frameworks, and operational platforms, ultimately leading to a stronger and more integrated response to the COVID-19 outbreak. You may view and download these materials from their sections, or use these links for bundled downloads:
