A Novel Coronavirus Initiative
NOT ALL HEROES
WEAR CAPES, BUT
THEY ALL NEED MASKS.
Taiwan providing relief for COVID-19
As many of us continue to practice social distancing, self-isolation and quarantine in a bid to help flatten the curve, there are those who are tackling this pandemic head-on without the adequate resources to ensure their own safety and the well-being of their patients. We have launched this initiative to mobilize our community of startups, corporates and investors to address the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The coronavirus has come into our lives like an unwanted guest, and with no foreseeable end in sight, it has brought a whole new meaning to overstaying one’s welcome. Initially seen as an Asia problem, COVID-19 has quickly escalated to become a global issue, resulting in unprecedented health, economic and societal challenges.
This initiative is meant to be a catalyst to drive innovation and collaboration between various stakeholders. We hope to leverage the unique resources and expertise in Taiwan to help those communities who are currently most vulnerable.
If you are in a position to provide medical resources or supplies please let us know how you are able to contribute. Or if you are a medical facility in desperate need of limited resources let us know what you need.
Taiwan is here to help.
Helping Healthcare Systems
Hospitals and medical professionals are in desperate need of medical equipment. We are looking for solutions addressing ventilators, respirators, ICU beds and personal protection equipment (gloves, face masks, N95 respirators, goggles, face shields, isolations gowns, disinfectants).
PREVENTION & CONTROL
Flattening the curve will help alleviate the current burden on the health system and the limited resources. We are looking for solutions addressing education, masks, sanitizing products, symptom diagnostics and telemedicine.
DIAGNOSTICS & TREATMENT
At present the need for diagnostic tests is extremely high, as countries look to offer wide spread testing in order to reduce the spread. In the longer term there is a collective effort to find suitable treatment and vaccine options.
ANCILLARY HEALTH SERVICES
Due to current restrictions and the additional burden placed on the healthcare system, there is a need for solutions that will help facilitate continued healthcare services outside of their normal setting.
