The COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed the entire world, and India has borne the brunt of the same. Hospitals across the country encountered severe challenges; the most significant was testing and caring for patients with known or suspected COVID-19 and protecting staff members. To provide adequate support to the hospitals during this pandemic, United Way India network gear up to combat COVID-19 and started working with 50 hospitals across the country.

In addition, the hospitals faced challenges in maintaining or expanding their capacities to treat COVID-19 patients and ensuring the adequacy of basic supplies. The critical shortages of ventilators, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and test kits in hospitals were not left unnoticed by the United Way India Network.
