The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry launched an online marketplace for personal protective equipment (PPE) amid growing demand.
The Rapid Response Initiative (RRI) is a free-of-charge platform that connects UAE companies and healthcare providers with reliable suppliers of PPE products.
According to Dubai Chamber, this comes after demand among businesses grew as they commit to complying with the safety measures introduced by the UAE government in order to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Potential buyers can find a wide range of medical products available on the platform.
These include surgical and reusable facemasks and shields, safety goggles, hand sanitizers, disposable gloves, medical gowns and coveralls, ventilators and thermometers.
