Two million surgical masks
To assist front-line caregivers in the fight against COVID-19, AXA has pledged to donate two million surgical masks to the Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), which employs 95,000 people and treats 8.3 million patients each year. This donation includes 350,000 FFP2 masks, whose level of protection is adapted to the immediate needs of the most exposed healthcare personnel.
This delivery is part of the air bridge set up by the French government between France and China. They will be distributed to all 39 AP-HP facilities (including elderly care facilities).
