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.

Have you tested positive for or were exposed to COVID-19?
If you tested positive for or were exposed to COVID-19 within the past 5 days, then you may be eligible to enroll in one of two trials and have a 50% chance of receiving antibody-rich plasma. By enrolling in either study, you achieve two goals: potentially receiving healing plasma for yourself, and furthering research that can get plasma for others.
Consult with your healthcare provider as there are risks and please consider joining this trial.
