Indonesia PASTI BISA Safeguards PPE Distribution
Indonesia PASTI BISA Jaga APD uses e-commerce technology to gather PPE requests from health workers throughout Indonesia.
East Ventures collaborates with Sirclo, and PTS builds a platform that facilitates the process of fulfilling PPE needs for providers (producers or suppliers), donors (individuals and corporations), and those who need PPE (facilities and health workers). We are committed to channeling PPE to the right parties, namely medical workers who work at the forefront.
In addition, we ensure that available products meet the right standards for each intended use. Indonesia PASTI BISA also works with the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs to empower SMEs as a PPE provider. Through this initiative, thousands of SME garment producers in Indonesia whose businesses were affected by the COVID-19 outbreak could return to production and be involved in efforts to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia.
