Our Needs

Certain antimalarial drugs, common for people with rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, might be used against COVID-19, to lower the risk of getting it or protect people from the most severe diseases. This evidence could save the lives of people around the world, including 1.4 million Calgary and area residents. Canadian researchers, including Dr. Clarke from Calgary, are mobilized to conduct this research quickly, accurately and collaboratively across the country, starting now, with your help.
