Researchers at NUI Galway and University of Limerick have designed a new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) emergency supply donation website to connect industry PPE stock to hospitals worldwide during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Speaking with my clinical colleagues across the world and looking at the repeating patterns of health supply logistics breakdowns that have occurred as Covid-19 surges have swept across the world, it is clear that innovative alternative solutions need to be developed such as www.covidmedsupply.org to enable frontline staff get vital PPE to keep them and their patients safe,” said Professor Derek O’Keeffe, Consultant Physician University Hospital Galway and Professor of Medical Device Technology, NUI Galway.

The new global platform, www.covidmedsupply.org, allows local organisations, such as industry, business, universities, and laboratories, who may have PPE stock in supply to list the categories of what they have on inventory of PPE’s, such as gloves, gowns, goggles., with contact details and then drop a map pin to show their geographic location.
