On May 20, 2020, Vice Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu attended the launching ceremony of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for World Health Organization (WHO) program in China.

Li Jinhua, Vice Chairman of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and President of the China Population Welfare Foundation, attended the ceremony and delivered a speech, saying that the program will give full play to the advantages of Chinese charities and social organizations, and make positive contributions to the global fight against the pandemic. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, in his recorded remarks delivered at the ceremony, thanked China for its participation in and support for the WHO-led global fight against COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund is a WHO initiative designed to encourage individuals, businesses and charities to contribute to the global response to COVID-19, which will primarily help countries with fragile health systems, such as those in Africa. The launch of the program in China is a step to implement President Xi Jinping's vision of building a global community of health for all. China has been actively participating in the global fight against COVID-19 and firmly supporting WHO in playing a leading role in international cooperation. We already provided WHO with US$50 million in assistance.
