DIPD statement on the COVID-19 pandemic

DIPD is an international organization working to support democratization and democratic political parties around the world. As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves globally, it is our highest priority to support and protect our staff and our partners.

Following the recommendations of the Danish health authorities and the government of Denmark, DIPD is taking extensive action in order to minimize the risk of transmitting COVID-19. In Denmark, this includes that all staff members are required to work from home and that all physical meetings and travels have been cancelled. The same steps have been taken at DIPD’s country representations in Myanmar and Nepal.

Similarly, DIPD encourages all our domestic and international partners to follow the regulations and recommendations of their national health authorities, and to display extraordinary vigilance and care. Your health and safety are our highest priority.

As the pandemic continues to affect families and entire societies around the world, DIPD stands with our partners and makes ourselves available for support and dialogue in these testing times.
