Support AKU’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic is having an enormous impact on individuals and families in our communities and around the world.
AKU is on the front lines of the response to this unprecedented health challenge. Our dedicated physicians, nurses and other medical staff are working tirelessly to save lives.
You can support our efforts to secure specialised medical equipment, provide testing and life-saving care to the vulnerable through our Patient Welfare Programme, and address the needs of our physicians and healthcare personnel during this extraordinary time.
We are immensely grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that we have received from all our supporters.
The COVID-19 Fund would support the following:
Providing world-class medical care, including for disadvantaged patients through our Patient Welfare Programme;
Securing specialised equipment including ventilators and personal protective gear for our staff;
Changes to our hospital and University facilities to expand our capacity to respond effectively to this emergency;
Research by our infectious disease specialists, and others, that contributes to the global effort to deliver better diagnostics for COVID-19 and care for those infected;
Support for our staff who are working exceedingly long hours, and need accommodation and other essential support.
