About Us

The Covid Plasma Initiative Foundation is a non-profit initiative serving as the central hub of a network between COVID-19 patients and their families, plasma donors, and physicians or hospitals. Our mission is to make convalescent COVID-19 plasma accessible to as many COVID-19 patients as possible.

Covid Plasma Initiative is currently the primary donor pool of convalescent COVID-19 plasma in the NY region and among the largest in the USA.

Covid Plasma Initiative partnered with medical affiliates including the New York Blood Center, Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins.

Thousands of plasma donations have occurred or have been scheduled. We continue to add regions beyond the NY/NJ area.

Each plasma donation = 3 patients treated. Doctors on the front lines report markedly higher chances of recovery with convalescent COVID-19 plasma treatment.

If you are a healthcare provider located outside the NY metro area, and are in need of convalescent plasma to treat your patients, plasma is immediately available at our partner, New York Blood Center, and can be directly ordered and shipped within hours on a non-contractual basis. No need to order via your local blood center.
