Through the initiative, company helps identify medical requirements that are needed on urgent basis and connects hospitals / doctors with suppliers who can fulfil it

Our healthcare community is working relentlessly to stop the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve in India. During these tough times, they are facing a shortage of medical supplies and the nation-wide lockdown isn’t helping the case either. In an attempt to help doctors and healthcare professionals, Quikr has launched helphospitals.in, a platform which connects medical communities with relevant suppliers to source equipment and materials needed for treatment of COVID-19 patients and safety of medical staff.

Through this initiative, the company helps identify medical requirements that are needed on an urgent basis and connects hospitals / doctors with suppliers who can fulfil it. Currently available pan India, the platform is seeing an increased traction on a daily basis, especially in Telangana, Delhi, Karnataka where there is a dire need for medical supplies. With an increased demand of about 2.72 lakh units across India, some of the most in need items are 3-ply masks, gloves, bouffant caps, coverall suits, ventilators, hand sanitisers, bleach disinfectant, infrared thermometer, needle cutters, and HME bacterial viral breathing filters among others.

This is a unique initiative which is a part of the larger industry-level drive announced recently – Action COVID-19 Team (ACT) launched by Indian start-ups and investors to support innovations that address COVID-19 challenges in the country.
