Healthcare support programme in the crisis caused by COVID 19 in Spain

Social area

The Amancio Ortega Foundation has set a process in motion of purchasing medical material for the fight against COVID-19 and donating it immediately to health centres around the country. The acquisition of material is being carried out in accordance with the technical-sanitary guidelines set by the Spanish authorities. The material is being made available as soon as it arrives in Spain.

The goal of this action is to supplement available equipment for the necessary care of patients while increasing the protection capacity of the health professionals themselves against exposure to the virus. The material acquired consists mainly of respirators for intensive care units, filter masks and other protective equipment, corona virus detection kits and other equipment, such as hospital beds.
