With the talent and knowledge of the multinational free-trade zone and national companies, academia, and the public sector, Costa Rica has created the initiative, which was founded to serve, in the quickest way and at the lowest cost, the need for tools and equipment required by the Costa Rican health entities in the fight against COVID-19.

The project will create protective equipment and supplies for healthcare professionals on the front lines of our current health emergency, including necessities such as waterproof gowns, surgical masks, mechanical ventilators, among others.
