Orient Euro Pharma helps PH’s fight against COVID-19

Makati, Philippines – Before the pandemic started, the Philippines was seen to have steady economic growth, becoming one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia with an average GDP of 6.3 percent over the ten years until 2019.

However, the onset of the global health crisis brought the country’s economy into recession. This broke almost three decades of uninterrupted growth. Since the pandemic started, the country’s COVID-19 cases are now over 1.6 million as per the Department of Health (DOH) data. 

Major metropolitan areas like Metro Manila, Cebu, and Davao, posted the bulk of the COVID-19 cases. In addition, various degrees of community quarantine is implemented to control the spread of the virus.

Helping alleviate challenges

Aligned with their mission and vision of understanding and meeting the real needs of people, Orient EuroPharma Philippines (OEPP) initiated a program to help alleviate the challenges in the country. OEPP isa company creating innovative, affordable, and high-quality pharmaceutical products for cardiovascular, metabolic, and respiratory infections.

Through their Project #Hope or Helping Our Patients Every day, OEP recently donated the much-needed Erdosteine to key government COVID-19 medical facilities.

Erdosteine is a mucolytic indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic bronchitis. It has been the subject of numerous clinical trials. It is effective as an add-on treatment to Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients for as long as 12 months.

Adding Erdosteine to the usual treatment therapy of hospitalized patients with COVID-related pneumonia and severe respiratory failure helps improve their overall health-related quality of life, says a study published in Multidisciplinary Respiratory Medicine 2020 journal.

As part of their corporate responsibility program, OEPP’s #HOPE aims to support around 600 post-covid patients from hospitals. This includes the Veterans Memorial Medical Center, the Philippine General Hospital Section of Pulmonology, and Quirino Memorial Medical Center.

“As we create more plans to help the people amid the global health crisis, we hope that this small donation initiative we did can have a huge impact on the patients’ lives. This initiative is also our way of giving back to the community and supporting the Filipino patients afflicted with this deadly disease.”
