UC San Diego Health Launches Donation Website for COVID-19 Emergency Response
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has strained daily life across communities, countries and continents. It has particularly impacted the health care industry. UC San Diego Health has been at the forefront of the fight, both in treating patients and in developing a better understanding of the virus and how best to control its spread and consequences.
To help alleviate the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies in San Diego, UC San Diego Health has launched a donation website for the COVID-19 pandemic. While we are currently successfully managing PPE supplies as responsible stewards of our resources, we are asking all researchers and relevant facilities, individuals, organizations and communities to help by making key equipment and materials available to UC San Diego Health.
Through the website, we are accepting donations of PPE, food and other items for caregivers and financial contributions. For more information, please visit
health.ucsd.edu/covid-donate. Together, we can play an important role in addressing this emergency and helping those affected as we continue to protect the safety of our community and health care workers.
