This page was developed to support India during the COVID-19 surge in the spring of 2021. More updated, globally applicable content can be found here.

Stanford faculty, many of whom have close personal and professional ties to India, have been hard at work building solutions, compiling resources, and communicating essential information. Working closely with Dr. Nidhi Rohatgi, we have compiled a comprehensive list of vetted public resources developed at Stanford for families and healthcare workers in India struggling to treat patients and loved ones.

Below is a list of various resources for in-home treatment, low-resource ICU guides and protocols, and trainings for healthcare workers without COVID-19 experience. Additionally, for those outside of India eager to offer assistance and aid from afar, we have compiled a list of vetted organizations urgently acting to address the crisis.
