This document presents the overall findings from a desk study that will provide input and support to the COVID-19 Global Evaluation Coalition’s ongoing evaluation of the overall coherence of bilateral, multilateral, United Nation (UN) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) response to COVID19, including on vaccine equity. The aim of the desk review is to analyse and synthesise documentary evidence to help answer the evaluation questions, focusing on findings, conclusions and lessons, including identifying areas of contradiction or missing information. In order to scope the desk review, specific key terms have been identified and each section in the findings section will start out by defining the term. The desk review has focused on bilateral providers as well as on support from multilateral organisations.
