Life After COVID

New Beginnings. Endless Possibilities.

We fight to contain the coronavirus infection (COVID-19) surge and eradicate the disease.


We seek to improve the diagnostics and treatment of coronavirus infection survivors.


We work to overcome the divide, in any shape and form, in society at large stemming from this deadly and dreadful disease which, with no doubt at all – and for us personally – is bringing tumultuous, daily consequences and hardship.


We emerge from crises and uncertainty to find meaning and further heal, and towards growth in healthcare and economy at large.


We are committed to our perpetual campaign with newly mobilized energy and endless devotion.
