Video explains Irish biopharmaceutical industry work against COVID-19

The Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association (IPHA) has launched a video explaining the work members companies have undertaken so far to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

IPHA says:

“The montage video is a response to a call by IPHA to the industry asking companies to share practical examples of how they are helping to fight COVID-19.

“The self-generated video footage comes from the frontline of the industry, featuring 16 leading research-based companies.

“In science, manufacturing and the supply chain, and through partnership work with the Government, hospitals and charities, the biopharmaceutical industry is making a big difference.”

Watch the video here.

The Irish industry’s response has been built around five concepts:

  1. Continuously monitoring supply chains so that medicines get to patients who need them
  2. Keeping manufacturing operations open so that medicines are made for patients in Ireland and around the world
  3. Working towards a vaccine and a treatment so that we can stop this sometimes deadly disease in its tracks
  4. Working with local charities, hospitals and patient advocacy groups, providing practical support that can make a real difference to people’s lives
  5. Supporting the Government in managing the response to the pandemic by sharing information and insights, and supplying the health authorities with appropriate resources
