Analog Devices (ADI) has announced that the Analog Devices Foundation is helping to combat the global fight against COVID-19. The Foundation is the company’s platform for engineering a better future with its mission to address many of the complex societal issues that impact the communities in which ADI lives and works.

The Analog Devices Foundation has announced its support of the World Health Organization (WHO) COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund powered by the UN Foundation and a partnership with Global Citizen on its televised and streamed special “One World: Together At Home”. The WHO is leading the global effort to prevent, detect and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fund was created to implement the COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan to track and contain the spread of the virus, ensure patients and frontline workers get the resources they need, and accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests and treatments. In addition, ADI and the Analog Devices Foundation will provide an accelerated match of ADI employee donations made to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO.  

“We are all affected by the growing COVID-19 pandemic. It is our moral obligation and duty to support the essential work of organisations making a difference in combating this fight,” said Vincent Roche, President and CEO of ADI. “We can all make a difference and that’s why we are especially pleased to partner with Global Citizen and support their Together At Home initiative, which will be a source of inspiration and encouragement during this challenging period.”

It will also stream online via Amazon Prime Video, Apple, Facebook, iHeartRadio, Instagram, Tencent, Tidal, TuneIn, Twitch, Twitter, Yahoo, YouTube and TKTK.

“One World: Together At Home” will include stories from healthcare heroes battling the spread of COVID-19, as well as messages of gratitude and appreciation from those that they have helped. It will include segments from WHO and UN global health experts, with appearances and performances curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga.
