The COVID-19 outbreak is changing every day. So is what we’re doing to respond.

Across the country, essential workers and healthcare systems actively battling the coronavirus pandemic are under-resourced. Beyond that, the COVID-19 outbreak is leading to drastic changes in every sector, many that we’re ill-prepared for. And it’s our responsibility to do what we can. Because our community health depends on our ability to care for everybody as proactively as possible.

Frontlines.Health Foundation

Frontlines.Health Foundation was created by Klick Health to support frontline and allied healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The foundation’s efforts are laser-focused on ensuring the health and safety of the people keeping us all safe and well.

The demand for protective equipment on the frontlines is greater than Klick can serve on our own. One hundred percent of donations to Frontlines.Health will go towards material and fabrication of intubation boxes and other critical personal protective equipment (PPE).

COVID-19 Intubation Box

Protecting healthcare practitioners.

A simple piece of protective equipment that could make a difference in the fight against the outbreak. The New England Journal of Medicine has just published a video showing the effect of the intubation box.

In partnership with Klick Health and Italic Press, rapid localization (adjusting dimensions to match North American hospital beds and body sizes), prototyping, and distribution to Toronto area hospitals began within days. It is our hope to provide protection to physicians intubating patients across the Greater Toronto Area and North Eastern United States.

In this time of need, so many organizations and individuals have stepped up in service of their communities, checking the box on supportive actions from nourishing the food insecure to applauding health workers daily. Will you help check off another box?

One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to the creation of frontline protective equipment, with all overhead and shipping costs being absorbed by Klick Health and our partners. By working closely with our partners we have reduced the price per intubation box to $105 USD. Our delivery partners are often able to deliver to hospitals at zero cost, ensuring the maximum donated dollars go straight to protecting those most in need.

Check the box. Help us protect the people on the frontlines of COVID-19.
