Antiviral Aid Against Ebola

Untitled-1Mundipharma has partnered with Direct Relief, a leading aid organisation, to donate supplies of its BETADINE® range of antivirals to support the aid organisation’s efforts to contain the current outbreak of Ebola in West Africa.

During this outbreak of Ebola, most of the disease has spread through human-to-human transmission. According to World Health Organization guidelines, hand hygiene is the most important infection prevention and control measure. The WHO has recommended hand washing as a key measure in infection control since the skin is a routine source of infection transmission.

imgres-1To support the guidelines, Mundipharma will donate supplies of BETADINE® to provide more than two million hand washes in the Ebola treatment centres of West Africa. The supplies of BETADINE® Surgical Scrub and BETADINE® Scalp and Skin Cleanser donated by Mundipharma are medicated soaps containing povidone iodine, a well-known antiviral, to provide hand disinfection even in areas without access to clean running water.

The donation is one of a number of initiatives currently being implemented by Mundipharma employees globally in a proactive drive to address the rising medical needs of Ebola patients.
