Over the last six months, we centered our MUSP activities around engagement efforts throughout the sub-region to ensure that Mekong countries and citizens can continue recovering from the current pandemic. To date, the United States has donated nearly 487 million vaccine doses to the Mekong sub-region to help protect people from COVID-19 and its variants. In addition to the health impacts, the pandemic has exacerbated the transnational criminal networks trafficking drugs, humans, and wildlife. In 2022, the United States provided approximately $31 million to build capacity in countries in the lower Mekong sub-region to combat transnational crime, please find a copy of the report here: https://mekonguspartnership.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/04/MUSP-Newsletter-February-2023.pdf
