Press article from Peru
SternMed GmbH is pleased to be at the forefront of the fight against the rampant coronavirus, helping to equip intensive care units in hospitals and clinics around the world quickly and easily. It is all the more gratifying when this commitment, which is linked to hard work, finds media attention. This is what happened recently in Peru, where SternMed played a major role in securing the supply of ICU ventilators to the hospital in Loreto.
An excerpt from the “Andina”:
“To improve care for critical patients, EsSalud’s Loreto Healthcare Network has increased the number of beds in the intensive care unit for critical patients with coronavirus who require mechanical ventilation at Hospital III in Iquitos. The network’s director, Dr Percy Rojas Ferreyra, said that four mechanical ventilators had arrived for the hospital’s intensive care unit on the orders of Social Health Insurance President Fiorella Molinelli, increasing the number of beds in this area from six to ten. In addition to these beds, she said, the hospital’s shock room ward has four ventilators for the care of patients who are not in danger of losing their lives.”

EsSalud Peru Tweets
We look back with pride on the rapid, life-saving delivery of a total of 360 ventilators to Peru. 7 deliveries left our halls in Ravensburg, each with at least 50 of these urgently needed medical devices. The underlying cooperation with UNOPS Peru (United Nation Office for Projects) and the Peruvian health initiative EsSalud caused quite a stir. Local media reported on the project, as did the named organisations.
We are very proud to be featured on the official Twitter channels of UNHCR,the United Nations Refugee Agency. The tweets are a result of our collaboration with UNHCR-Lebanon, for which we provided ventilators to fight Covid.

Newsletter article: Lifesaving help from Oberschwaben:
SternMed GmbH is gaining attention with their dedicated fight against the coronavirus. The Schwäbische Zeitung reported on August 13th 2020.
“ Due to chronical under-monetized healthcare systems especially African countries have way too less medicinal devices. Mali for example is owning four ventilators for 18 million Inhabitants, according to the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. Simbabwes capitol Harare with its approximately one and a half million inhabitants has access to only one ventilator.
A company from Ravensburg want to help, changing that. The SternMed GmbH came to an agreement with the United Nations, to deliver ventilators over a long period of time. […] The advantage of the medium-sized company: All of the big competitors have long delivery times, says CEO Ralf Triebe.”
