    On December 27, the United Nations International Day of Epidemic Preparedness, we invite all key stakeholders to work with national and international health authorities and health care providers to assure a long term robust, resilient and sustainable stockpile program is developed.

    3M is eager to work with national and international health authorities to assure a long term robust, resilient and sustainable stockpile program is developed based on sound public health policy foundations and global government best practices.  We are ready to apply our science to help protect lives in public-private partnership with governments and especially to protect heroic healthcare workers who continue to help our sick and other essential frontline workers who make our society function.

    Stockpiling is a key pillar of robust epidemic preparedness. 3M has compiled global best practices for PPE stockpiling in a white paper available early 2021 - download the executive summary below. 3M has published a white paper on global best practices for PPE stockpiling.
