Last week iBIO joined the Illinois Manufacturers Association (IMA) and Governor JB Pritzker to announce the formation of the Essential Equipment Taskforce and iBIO’s COVID-19 PPE Response Fund.

The Essential Equipment Taskforce is a public and private sector partnership to help companies bridge significant gaps in the healthcare manufacturing supply chain and directly provide personal protective equipment and other supplies to the Illinois’ front-line healthcare workers so they can treat patients safely and efficiently.

Illinois manufacturers are stepping up to help supply needed PPE to our front line healthcare workers, but they need help. We need technical experts in legal, regulatory, engineering and other key services to help our manufacturers adjust their operations.

To coordinate our community’s support, iBIO has launched our Essential Equipment Taskforce Resource Center. The Resource Center helps manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and other members of the community support the Essential Equipment Taskforce’s efforts to bridge the gaps in our healthcare supply chain.
