In the challenging era of COVID-19, health workers are more critical than ever. They are on the front line of the fight against the pandemic, which is exacerbating funding gaps and pushing health systems, supply chains and the global workforce to their limits. The pandemic is forcing us to look at health worker training — both upskilling and reskilling — with a sense of renewed urgency.
During our flagship digital event, we will shine a spotlight on the challenges health professionals face in low- and middle-income countries while discussing innovative approaches that can reduce the shortage of trained health care workers. Furthermore, our expert speakers and panelists will amplify the calls for increased investment in capacity building and training for the healthcare workforce.
On July 21, 2020, Devex will host a half-day, online event to advocate for change, highlight solutions, and share approaches that help strengthen and empower health workers globally.
