SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As Ebola marches through West Africa, inadequate supplies of personal protective equipment and medical resources expose doctors, nurses, and their patients to significant risk. In response, more than 20 leading medical companies are stepping up with critically needed items to facilitate a series of emergency shipments with logistical support from FedEx.

"The unprecedented scale of the outbreak has over-stretched local and even international public health institutions, so the mobilization of private resources, including from companies who make essential products or just want to help, can play a defining role in the collective effort to stem the outbreak," said Thomas Tighe, President and CEO of Direct Relief. "We are deeply thankful so many are stepping up to help in so many ways."

The life-saving supplies – which amount to 40 tons and total 2.3 million gloves, 65,000 masks, 92,000 gowns, and 185,000 tabs of antibiotics – include products from 3M, Actavis Pharma, Inc., Ansell Healthcare, Basic Medical, Baxter International, Inc., BD, Cera Products, Inc., Covidien, Henry Schein, Inc., Kimberly-Clark, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Merck & Co., Inc., Mylan Laboratories, Inc., Nephron Pharmaceuticals, Omron Healthcare, Inc., Pfizer, Prestige Brands, Pro2 Solutions, Inc., Sappo Hill, and Teva.
