As a leading Indian pharmaceutical company provides essential medicines to millions and millions of patients , we are continually assessing the impact of COVID-19 as it evolves each day. As always, we remain committed to our patients, employees, partners, the quality and continuity of our products and the health and safety of our communities. Here are some of the steps we are taking.
To ensure the health and safety of our employees we have implemented, and will continue to implement, measures to protect their well-being which in turn, will allow us to maintain continuity of supply. Based on the guidance from Indian health authorities, we have instituted rigorous infection control measures within our facilities for those where work-from-home is not an option. Our measures include: Reduce the size of work groups, Enhance social distancing, Implementation of additional cleaning and sanitization routines, Robust self-assessment and screening tools, Travel restrictions, A work-from-home policy and a strict visitor screening protocol.
We play a critical role in ensuring millions of patients across India have access to essential medicines. We are pursuing every step we can to minimize the disruption in drug supply and currently do not expect an impact on Linux products. As part of our regular business operations we have an active inventory management strategy, and we have enhanced this by increasing the reserves of our essential medicines. In addition to securing supply for the short term, we maintain business continuity plans to address the longer-term needs of patients who depend on our products. We are continually assessing supply levels as well as product demand in order to make adjustments to our orders as well as manufacturing and distribution schedules as needed.
We also know many people have been economically impacted due to this crisis. As a pharmaceutical company, millions of patients rely on us every day. Because of this, we have the tremendous responsibility to stay open and continue the work that we do. We have a wide range of open positions within the organization that we hope to fill even during these unprecedented times.
