The COVID-19 crisis has resulted in a global shortage of PPE but the response and level of innovation from businesses, institutes and individuals around the world has been amazing. At Innovia Medical we applaud the community spirit and ingenuity that has meant our health care workers get the critical protection they need. Alongside this, we understand the importance and challenges of regulation standards within the medical sector.
