Abstract: Collaborative governance of emergency is not a simple patchwork or mechanical combination of multiple subjects, but a process of effective interaction and integration according to the emergency management situation. Voluntary organizations are the main embedded forces in the collaborative governance of public health emergencies. In the process of corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) prevention and control, voluntary organizations actively embedded resources, functions and relationships, reflecting the characteristics of organization, socialization, and online system that are different from previous volunteer services, thus, become an important part of emergency collaborative governance system. This progress comes from the combination, nesting, mutual consultation and innovation of policy tools, and more from the strong advantages of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics. At present, the pattern of emergency collaborative governance is still under construction, and the "embedding" action of voluntary organizations is still affected by system, technology and concept. So, it is necessary to further promote the "embedding" action of voluntary organizations by improving the emergency legal guarantee mechanism and collaborative governance system, straightening out the relationship between government and society, and enhancing the ability of voluntary organizations.

Key words: voluntary organizations, public health emergencies, collaborative governance, embeddedness theory, emergency management
