Event Overview: MFAN recently published “Responding Effectively to the COVID-19 Crisis.” The document outlines policy recommendations intended to inform and guide decision-makers, including Members of Congress and their staff who are developing legislation related to COVID-19 and conducting oversight of the executive branch’s international response. The panel will describe these policy recommendations, which include: maximizing the efficiency of a response team; making evidence-based investments and expanding commitments to transparency; increasing flexibility; working directly with local governments and civil society organizations; measuring success wisely; and focusing on prevention and continued long-term development.
