Statement on COVID-19

The worldwide spread of COVID-19 is affecting thousands of people. The global pandemic is impacting in the activities of individuals, organisations and companies. It is also a challenging moment for the cooperative movement and especially for healthcare cooperatives.

The International Health Cooperative Organisation wants to express solidarity with all those suffering the disease and its effects.

IHCO’s priority is to contribute to the containment of the epidemic following at all times the measures and recommendations by the World Health Organisation and National Health authorities.

IHCO wants to highlight the great work that health professionals are doing to face this emergency. Doctors, nurses, orderlies, ambulance drivers, pharmacists, administrative officers, etc… are making enormous efforts to guarantee the safety and well-being of the population.

We extend our warmest gratitude to all those on the front line struggling to defeat this global health challenge.
