In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Air Liquide Foundation contacted the Foundation's partner research organizations and associations right from the start of the pandemic.

  • In the field of respiratory research, the Foundation is supporting research projects to better understand the action of the virus in the lungs, improve the management of patients with respiratory problems and evaluate follow-up protocols after hospitalization.    
  • In the field of emergency aid, the Foundation supports the beneficiaries most affected by Covid-19 through associations working in the field.
