DITTA Dynamics for a Challenging Year 2020
The current COVID-19 pandemic has placed an unprecedented strain on healthcare systems worldwide. It has demanded efforts above and beyond the norm from the medical technology industries, which has strived to meet the extra demands placed on them.
Corporate members, represented by DITTA member organisations, have being proactive throughout the pandemic, ensuring supply of respiratory assistance devices (ventilators), patient monitoring systems and medical imaging equipment (X-ray, ultrasound and Computed tomography - CT). They have also reconfigured their supply priorities to meet the increased demand in affected countries and regions around the globe.
DITTA has also remained active at international level. Together with our partners and fellow organisations representing innovative health industries, we have been unified in our welcome for the United Nations General Assembly Resolution on “International Cooperation to ensure global access to medicines, vaccines and medical equipment to face COVID-19".

We issued a joint statement during the 73rd World Health Assembly.
