MHI is coordinating with the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) on supply chain continuity and critical health care resources in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. ALAN is working with multiple government and private sector organizations including Healthcare Ready to strengthen health care supply chains through collaboration with public health and private sectors.
Kathy Fulton of ALAN talks about the supply chain community’s role in disaster response and why the COVID-19 relief effort has been different from all the rest in this article.
Currently, there is a dire shortage of personal protective equipment and cleaning and disinfecting supplies. MHI and ALAN are asking any company who has these supplies on hand to donate them to Healthcare Ready or your local hospital if you are able:
–Protective face masks
–Cleaning and disinfecting supplies
