The U.S. and Mexico are in the midst of the largest aid package for the fight against the Zika disease that could be signed into law before the summer.
In the wake of the pandemic, U.N. agencies are offering billions of dollars to help governments battle the Zika epidemic, but the U.K. and Canada are providing less than half of the expected $1 billion.
The new $1,650 billion package will come in the form of aid for the developing countries, which account for 80 percent of the global cases.
The United States is offering $250 million to help countries that have been hardest hit by the virus, while Canada has provided $100 million.
Mexico, which has been at the center of the epidemic in Latin America, has provided more than $3 billion.
U.S.-backed Colombia has been in the middle of the outbreak.
U. S. President Donald Trump has said he wants to see the nation reach its full potential.
The Colombian government is expected to release its own aid figures Monday.
The aid package is expected the U:s first step toward establishing a joint global fund to help finance the world’s poorest countries.
