COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pharma Industry Resources

Last Updated: 25 March 2020

As we continue to monitor the global COVID-19 public health emergency, our thoughts are with our Members and those impacted. We recognize that the ever-changing nature of this novel virus is concerning and is requiring many of us to adjust our standard practices. Still, we want to assure you that ISPE is here to support your knowledge and connectivity needs.

Global/Local Resources

ISPE Affiliates and Chapters are a true local extension of the Society, so please reach out to the affiliate/chapter in your area for ground support and resources. Each affiliate and chapter will independently make decisions regarding their planned events, considering guidance provided by ISPE. And remember you can always stay connected to your fellow Members around the globe through ISPE's Community of Practice (CoP) online platform Community Connection, and through use of the ISPE Member Directory.



As part of our FREE Pharma Best Practices Webinar Series, we will offer the webinar COVID-19: Pharma Supply Chain Security & Robustness During Global Pandemic on 2 April at 1100 EDT. You'll hear from a panel of subject matter experts as they discuss current challenges in keeping the supply chain operations running during an ongoing global crisis like COVID-19.
