Message from Management

One year has passed since world first faced the COVID-19 pandemic. We offer our deepest condolences for the people who have lost their lives during this time due to COVID-19, and pray for the recovery of others who have been afflicted by the virus.

With the three key policies of (1) ensuring the health and safety of all Terumo Associates, (2) maintaining a stable supply of products, and (3) actively contributing to prevention and treatment of the disease, the entire Terumo Group continues to work in the fight against COVID-19 to support medical professionals on the front lines and continue bringing treatment to patients.

Dr. Shibasaburo Kitasato, one of Terumo’s founders, dedicated his life to infectious disease prevention and microbiological research. Having inherited his DNA, Terumo has a long history of working to fight infectious diseases. In the COVID-19 crisis, we are reminded of the true meaning of our Group Mission of "Contributing to Society through Healthcare," and strongly feel a renewed sense of our purpose as a company—to keep working to bring solutions to medical settings.

In the post-COVID-19 world as well, the Terumo Group will continue to contribute to the health and safety globally.
