Date(s): -
IntraHealth International

Frontline health workers have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic. From providing care to critically ill clients and educating communities to supporting vaccination campaigns, they are crucial to global health security and pandemic preparedness. To be fully prepared, health workers need to be trained and supported with a robust human resources for health system. This panel of experts will explore how we can better prepare for future pandemics and increase our global health security by investing in and supporting health workers around the world.

Janet Muriuki, senior director of health workforce development for IntraHealth International, will moderate the event with opening remarks from Polly Dunford, president and CEO of IntraHealth International.

This webinar will be simultaneously interpreted in French and Spanish.
