Through its wide-ranging relief efforts, the Company is focusing on initiatives that have the maximum impact and reach. It is currently supporting public health institutions, frontline healthcare workers, vulnerable patients and communities struggling in the aftermath.

Of the INR 25 crores set aside for COVID response, the Company has announced a donation of INR 9 crore to the PM CARES Fund. In addition, Cipla has announced a donation of INR 8 crore to different State authorities. These contributions will help to further several immediate and long-term relief efforts that the country needs to combat the size and scale of the crisis it is confronted with. Over and above, Cipla Foundation, the social responsibility arm of Cipla, has committed INR 4 crore towards COVID response programmes, many of which are already underway. The Company has also allocated INR 4 crore towards the supply of essentials including medicines, personal protective equipment, sanitisers, masks, gloves and food. Cipla is committed to combatting the crisis on multiple fronts:

Caring for patients

The company has implemented a spate of stringent safety measures in line with social distancing norms so that manufacturing and distribution of essential medicines can continue despite challenges of remote working. Employees have been working at manufacturing locations and depots, driven to uphold the interest of patients in these difficult times. Additionally, Cipla has also launched a toll-free helpline to assist its patients in procuring essential medication across therapies from pharmacies and healthcare institutions. Through its Foundation, the company has been supporting public health and charitable hospitals to manage the crisis and serve vulnerable patients in need. Since Maharashtra is one of the worst affected, the Foundation has partnered with several hospitals in Mumbai to strengthen the state's healthcare infrastructure to tackle the pandemic. Towards this, the organization has supported the setting-up of a COVID-19 24/7 testing laboratory at JJ Hospital that will benefit over 4,000 patients as well as the city's only isolation ward for pediatric patients suspected of having COVID-19 at the BJ Wadia Hospital for Children. The Cipla Palliative Care & Training Centre in Pune continues to offer 24/7 care to patients and families during this challenging time.

Through its Foundation, the company is aiming to connect doctors and healthcare workers across India with the AIIMS and ICMR led knowledge network on COVID-19 through ECHO India-a technology-based knowledge sharing platform. These online facilities, the first in India for the pandemic, will be set up at leading government and medical colleges.
