Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is instrumental in protecting healthcare professionals from harmful substances and preventing the transmission of infections.
The Covid-19 pandemic has proven just how effective PPE such as face masks can be in slowing the rate at which highly contagious viruses spread by preventing infection, therefore saving the lives of countless individuals.
Driven by its mission to support a healthier world, Unimed strives to provide secure and cost-effective international PPE procurement services, delivering a range of healthcare and medical supplies globally.
What Are Examples of PPE?
PPE is routinely utilised in healthcare settings to reduce the risk of micro-organisms being transmitted from patients to healthcare staff or others in the same environment.
There are different types of personal protective equipment that should be used based on the risks of transmission in a given environment and the type of exposure anticipated. These include:
The Role of PPE in Humanitarian Aid
PPE played a significant role in protecting health workers providing care to patients with Covid-19 at the height of the pandemic, acting as a critical resource that allowed staff to continue to assist those who were most in need.
And as Covid-19 as well as other infectious diseases continue to be a threat for populations in developing countries, the importance of distributing PPE supplies to countries that struggle to access them continues to be at the forefront of humanitarian efforts.
There are a number of populations globally that battle continuous virus outbreaks, and that do not have the necessary medical commodities needed to manage the crises effectively. When administering care, healthcare professionals or crisis volunteers may become infected themselves, contributing to the continued spread of viruses.
PPE will continue to be an indispensable resource to increase resilience and preparedness for developing countries, helping work towards eradicating viruses and diseases.
