Direct Relief Working to Slow the Spread of COVID-19

As everything is contracting, Direct Relief is expanding coronavirus response through intensified analysis, increased coordination, and expanded provision of medical essentials.

As case totals grow, Direct Relief is focusing on the three key areas of activity:

  • Providing assistance in the form of personal protective equipment, or PPE, for health workers,
  • Building an ICU medication model and mobilizing private resources to build a stockpile to assist with anticipated spike in ICU patients, and
  • Boosting support to safety-net facilities to address existing chronic gaps that are likely to grow.
