WDF and COVID-19

WDF and COVID-19

The WDF offices have now reopened. Planned meetings and travel are taking place via video. Where this is not possible, they will be postponed or cancelled. For more information, please contact us.

WDF has many partners in government and healthcare who are working to address the outbreak. We wish them and the populations they serve all the best during the current crisis. If the situation is likely to cause delays to WDF project deliverables or reporting, please contact us; we will find a solution.
