The Fight Against COVID-19

Ornella Barra’s Contribution During the Pandemic

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Ornella has led WBA’s international businesses through the pandemic, ensuring the company is best positioned to support governments and communities in the fight against the virus.

Under her leadership, WBA has played an integral role in providing an essential healthcare service during lockdowns and with vaccination programs globally. Ornella has been highly influential throughout this process, overseeing Boots UK’s involvement in the UK Government’s testing and vaccine drives at the height of the pandemic.

I am proud of the incredible role WBA played during the pandemic in communities across the world. Not only in terms of vaccines and tests, but importantly, removing barriers for underserved communities and serving as a source of reliable information.
