Reportedly, 3M (MMM) and Pandemic Action Network have collaborated on programs to help curb the spread of COVID-19 and also announced a commitment to work together to help prepare for any future pandemics.
3M will combine its learnings and insights from the Pandemic Action Network (a coalition of more than 100 global multi-sector), the first organization of its kind to advocate for policy changes and increased support and resources to ensure countries are better prepared to detect, prevent and respond to pandemic threats.
“We’re staying true to our 3M vision to improve every life, as we take steps today to prepare for and help protect against future pandemics. No stakeholder or sector can tackle the enormity of this alone. The challenge demands bold collaboration on solutions and innovative approaches with governments, NGOs, academic organizations and other companies because that’s how we will build a stronger and more resilient future.” stated Denise Rutherford, senior vice president and chief corporate affairs officer, 3M.
3M and Pandemic Action Network will work together on providing support to vulnerable communities that continue to bear the effects of COVID-19.
“With the mass roll-out of vaccines and the U.S. CDC’s recent guidance on masking, many people are understandably hopeful that the worst is behind us — but the COVID-19 pandemic is not over and now is not the time to let our guard down. So far in 2021, there have been more cases and deaths reported compared to the whole of 2020. We must act on lessons learned and continue to promote and inspire healthy behaviors while ensuring the world is better prepared for pandemic threats,” “Through our partnership with 3M, we will mobilize public support and catalyze action until the world has fully crushed this pandemic,” stated Gabrielle Fitzgerald, CEO of Panorama Global and co-founder of Pandemic Action Network.
