SUPPORTING A GLOBAL RESPONSE
We are committed to deploying our capabilities, expertise and scale to address critical health needs related to COVID-19.
As the world joins together to support our healthcare workers and others on the front lines, we are proud to have donated $2.4 million in cash and products to support COVID-19 relief efforts worldwide – including a $1 million donation to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO) .
We have made additional cash and product contributions totaling $1.4 million, including: providing cardiopulmonary support systems (ECMO, or Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) for respiratory assistance to infected patients in intensive care, and donating a large number of blood pressure monitors, digital thermometers and hand sanitizers to medical institutions.
Additionally, our sister company, Terumo BCT, is contributing additional product and knowledge support to conduct studies using BCT products to transfuse convalescent plasma to infected patients.
