Catalyzing & connecting the private sector response to COVID-19

Our goal is to connect businesses and organizations that are best-positioned to address critical needs during this public health crisis, often in innovative or unexpected ways. Then we support those businesses to do what they do best: scale products and services that can help the American public.

In the immediate term, we are keenly focused on working with companies—large and small—to spur development of personal protective equipment for medical and non-medical use, novel testing solutions, widely-accessible therapeutics and health services to address the needs of underserved communities. As the crisis evolves, we will continue to be responsive by tackling other urgent priorities.

We would love to hear from you if you believe your company can help support these efforts.

CRITICAL NEED | VACCINATIONS

Supporting the equitable allocation of vaccines

Vaccines are a critical component of a holistic COVID-19 response. The first wave of vaccines will not be a silver bullet due to limited supply and logistical challenges. However, if allocated thoughtfully, they will provide additional protection for a subset of our most vulnerable populations. We are working with partners to ensure resources are equitably distributed. We seek to support coalition building with respect to last mile distribution and culturally relevant communication to facilitate adoption. We would welcome the opportunity to connect with other organizations working towards a shared vision.

CRITICAL NEED | TESTING

Expanding America’s testing supply and equitable distribution infrastructure

We seek to not only mitigate but suppress the virus, helping increase America’s testing capabilities. We accomplish this by identifying affordable, rapid response point of care and point of need testing solutions that can support our nation’s most vulnerable communities. We offer test developers and manufacturers assistance in the form connections to vendors, research partners, samples, pilot testing partners, and distribution channels as well as funding.

CRITICAL NEED | HYPERLOCAL SUPPORT

Addressing the needs of underserved communities

Stop the Spread facilitates hyperlocal pandemic response projects for the hardest hit neighborhoods and communities. We bridge the gap between large-scale COVID-19 responses and local community needs. With a network of over 350 innovative partners that have been vetted and curated we facilitate bringing a tailored COVID-19 solution toolkit that can accelerate and augment response efforts already underway.

CRITICAL NEED | HEALTH SERVICES

Addressing healthcare inequities exacerbated by COVID-19

Health services play a critical role in promoting better health outcomes for individuals directly or indirectly affected by the pandemic. These services provide access to or empower individuals to obtain the resources they need to stay healthy and come in the form of telemedicine, decision support, remote monitoring, care coordination, food access, etc. We are working with partners who strive to meet the physical and mental health and social needs of communities most impacted by COVID-19. It is our objective to connect them with communities in need, organizations with whom they can collaborate and potential sources of capital, if applicable.

CRITICAL NEED | PPE

Rapidly scaling Personal Protective Equipment to communities most in need

Stop the Spread helps many of America’s leading companies and new innovators to harness their design, production and distribution capabilities and connect to sources of demand for PPE.

&

CRITICAL NEED | THERAPEUTICS

Accelerating development and deployment of novel therapies

We believe the most impactful therapeutics will lessen the duration and severity of the disease during the early infection phase. We are working to speed the development and deployment of these early interventions that are both readily scalable and affordable. For this reason,we actively support the use of repurposed drugs with existing safety profiles that will likely move through trials more rapidly.

&

CRITICAL NEED | VENTILATORS

Accelerating America’s ventilator production

Early in the pandemic, we helped to accelerate production of critical care ventilators by connecting leaders in ventilator technology with manufacturers that could rapidly produce and distribute these life-saving medical devices.
