Start Fund Bangladesh made its first COVID-19-related allocation on 27 March. This was one day after Bangladesh went into confinement and nine days after it reported its first death from the disease. The fund made its second allocation on 31 March. A total of $714,162 reached 4 million people from the most vulnerable communities across 23 districts. This increased vital access to facilities for protection against and treatment of COVID-19 and provided key health messages.
