The COVID-19 pandemic affected every part of our business, from plasma collection, to our supply chain, production and engagement with key stakeholders.

However, our employees across the business rallied to mitigate the worst effects of the crisis and, through close collaboration and thousands of individual actions, continued to produce and deliver life-saving medications on behalf of tens of thousands of patients who rely on them, while successfully executing on our strategy for profitable organic growth.

Reaching a community in need

Up to one in 200 children have Paediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS). The medical options to treat this rare disease remain limited but immunomodulation with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) seems to offer a real breakthrough.

Facing the challenge

While so much of the world has stopped for COVID-19, bleeding disorders have not. “Patients with a lifelong bleeding disorder such as VWD cannot put their treatment on “hold”. They rely on their medicines,” explains Kerri.

Patient Blood Management

Over a million cardiac surgical procedures that are performed each year require the transfusion of blood components. Although transfusion can be life-saving, they also carry inherent risks. Approaches, such as a PBM, improves patient safety.
