The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant global supply shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as FFP/N95 masks, surgical masks, surgical gowns etc. In standard practice, single-use items are never reprocessed, however as a measure of last resort in a crisis situation, reprocessing of these items can provide urgently needed PPE to healthcare workers on the front line.
Belimed is therefore sharing a collection of recent research and best practices from various regions around the world. This white paper is addressed to interested stakeholders to foster international knowledge exchange and to support informed decision processes.
