With continued virus circulation in the community and difficulties in health system capacity, the Hong Kong community is suffering from a shortage of personal protective equipment to support home quarantine care. GX foundation aims to strengthen health resilience-building efforts in the community, and to bridge transition needs in the government's anti-pandemic efforts.
In partnership with the Hong Kong Coalition, GX has procured140,000 adult face shields, 70,000 child face shields, and 70,000 surgical gowns. These will be distributed across the at-risk Hong Kong community. GX will also continue working on circulating information to build capacity for infection prevention.
