The COVID-19 pandemic has had a terrible impact on the welfare of nations across the globe. While all nations have been able to respond to COVID-19, not all responses are equal. This is the case in low- and middle-income countries, where access to medical treatments is lesser than the rest of the world. At this time, these countries need the most support in improving access to medical oxygen for their people. As Lean Med is working on its own solution to equitable global access to medical oxygen, we also like to promote awareness of these concerns to the general public.
Of course, we are far from the only individuals or entities working to spread this information. For that reason, we at Lean Med like to take time and help shine a light on the work of other organizations in this same area. With that in mind, we encourage you to read more from the Every Breath Counts Coalition about the need for access to medical oxygen in low- and middle-income countries and its connection to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
