The Story of Open Source Medical Supplies

How Open Source Medical Supplies responded to the COVID-19 crisis 

This is a moment to act and do whatever we can to make a difference in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. When everything around us is disrupted, action requires strength and perseverance.  

As COVID-19 spread across the world Gui Cavalcanti, Molly Rubenstein, and a vast global network of makers acted.

Gui shares their story here. It’s the story of the creation of Open Source Medical Supplies (OSMS) and the volunteer army of 74,000 makers who joined together to produce personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers and communities.

We’re honored to be working with Gui, Molly, and the OSMS team. Their work inspires me.

At RESOLVE we take it as our responsibility to help define the new normal, to get through this crisis and be better prepared for what’s next. OSMS is essential today and will help us create a future with better health outcomes.

As we work through this crisis together we’ll need wisdom to navigate, creativity to innovate, and passion to support collective action.

The OSMS team and this vast network are proof that every action counts.
