MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Following the news of the COVID-19 outbreak in the Philippines and the growing need to provide protection among civilians and frontliners against the virus, the SM Group has allocated Php 100M in support to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH), Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM), and other state-owned hospitals.

“To ensure the safety of medical frontliners, SM is bringing in personal protective equipment (PPE) – face masks, gowns, visors, hoods, gloves, and shoe covers, as well as urgent medical supplies to help government hospitals who badly need them,” said SM Prime’s Hans Sy.

Assistance has also been extended to Philippine General Hospital (PGH) and Research Institute for Tropical Management (RITM) for their urgent needs and for improving their laboratory testing capacity. Additionally, SM has also allocated PPEs and medical supplies to the UP Medical Foundation Inc. to reach a wider network of hospitals.


To improve availability of tests, SM has reached out to Manila Healthtek Inc. to distribute 20,000 tests for free to government hospitals, once approved for use.
