Purchasing PPE for Ukraine

Personal Protection Equipment for Ukraine

Project: Supporting Ukrainian Mental Health during COVID – 2020/416-691

The COVID-19 pandemic has not passed Ukraine and although the figures are still lower than in some other countries, the pandemic is gathering speed and not under control. Internationally it is also clear that institutions where vulnerable people are living in close quarters, e.g. psychiatric hospitals, social care homes and nursing homes, are the worst affected. Also in Ukraine a growing number of institutions are affected and the number of cases is growing. Most institutions lack Personal Protection Equipment (PPE; e.g. masks, goggles, gloves, protective suits) and even methods to detect infection at an early stage e.g. hand-held thermometers. When the infection becomes noticeable it is already too late. The Federation Global Initiative on Psychiatry and the Ukrainian Psychiatric Association, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Social Policy, have established a distribution system has been set up that guarantees delivery to the destined institutions and prevents dislocation of the dispatched PPE.

For our program to provide psychiatric hospitals and social care homes in Ukraine with much needed PPE we are inviting firms to provide us with a quote for the purchase of the following PPE:

  • 600 hand held thermometers
  • 3,000 Fpp-3 masks
  • 9,000 Fpp-2 masks


The thermometers should be reliable and coming with adequate certification. Experience in Lithuania has shown that Microlife thermometers should not be used. Thermometers produced by Rossmax have proven to be very reliable;

  1. Rapid delivery to a provided address in Kyiv. Speed is of importance in light of the continuing spread of the virus.
  2. The quote should include delivery costs and VAT should be indicated
  3. Payment will be made in Euro

Envisaged time-frame:

Submission of the quote: closing date July 5, 2020

Selection: before July 10, 2020

Delivery: as early as possible following that date
