TikTok is amping up its partnership with the World Health Organization and donates $10 million to fight the Coronavirus pandemic.
TikTok partnered with the WHO to provide advice and combat misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic. The platform plays an important role in informing its young audience about the reality and danger of COVID-19.
Now the company is amping up its efforts with a $10 million pledge to help the WHO with its Solidarity Response Fund.
The WHO’s Solidarity Response Fund helps support the medical staff battling the pandemic by “sending essential supplies to front line health care workers, ensuring communities have access to the latest science-based information, and accelerating efforts to discover life-saving treatments or vaccines.”
