Pandemic
Preparedness

The COVID-19 pandemic won't be the last outbreak your hospital will have to face.

Always read the label and follow the directions for use.

Now is the time to update your strategic PPE plan—when you can see, and measure—what your facility needs to be ready.

HIV-AIDS, H1N1 flu, Ebola, and now COVID-19 have all highlighted the critical challenges created by global disease outbreaks, including:

  • Lack of public-private sector coordination
  • Severe warehousing distribution capacity limitations
  • A far-flung global supply chain
  • Access constraints caused by airport and port restrictions and border closures.

A complex and remote supply chain can break in many places. That’s why implementing a strategic PPE plan matters when it comes to pandemic preparedness.

You can count on HALYARD* to help meet your needs during a pandemic event or infectious disease outbreak.

We invest in proximate production capacity and work with our raw material suppliers and distributor partners to meet current and future increased demand, with limited interruptions to our customers.
