In April 2020, Oxfam launched a call to cancel all the debt payments in 2020 so that developing countries like Uganda can maintain and increase social protection and health spending in response to COVID-19. In this newsletter, we bring you highlights of how we influenced G20 Finance Ministers, World Bank Governors and IMF Governors while they were making decisions on Coronavirus’ global response.

We also bring you highlights from Earth Day 2020 and the global online climate strike, a petition to the Speaker of Parliament to prioritize access to safe blood during the budgeting process, and so much more.
