#PrepareEaP4Health – Civil Society’s COVID-19 Response
The current outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic is a stress test, which reveals many political, economic and societal vulnerabilities of modern societies. At the same time, lessons learnt can be drawn and actions for improvement can be taken already now. This campaign aims to highlight the needs of six EaP countries to fight the outbreak of COVID-19, which has major impact on both – political and economic developments of the EU and EaP countries.

About COVID-19 timeline
While most of the Eastern Partnership countries adopted a similar range of measures to slow the spread of the virus at the beginning of the crisis in March 2020, their approaches have diverged quite significantly when it comes to reopening the economy and society, to mitigating the broader socio-economic effects of the crisis, and indeed to responding to resurgences in case numbers.
With this in mind, we created an interactive timeline, charting the key measures and milestones from the COVID-19 crisis for each of the six EaP countries in the areas of health, economy & society, and rights & freedoms.
Whether you wish to compare countries’ approaches, or learn more about the response of one particular government to the ongoing crisis, this tool presents a comprehensive overview of the experiences of the EaP countries at this unprecedented time. The tool covers the period from March 2020 until February 2021.
