Global South Action Plan: Protecting lives and livelihoods from COVID-19


This ActionAid briefing outlines how immediate healthcare funding for low-income countries must come from a one-time aid boost. It recommends leaders of the global south collaborate on a debt strike to afford progressive stimulus packages for people, not big companies. ActionAid also calls on the member countries of the IMF to approve the release of at least $4 trillion in immediate liquidity support to stop weak economies from collapsing (through Special Drawing Rights, as happened after the 2008 financial crisis).
