Please join us next week for a webinar on ‘Partnering for frontline health workers during COVID-19 and beyond’ at 2pm on Wednesday 19 May.

The essential role of health care workers has been reinforced during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Following the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife in 2020, the World Health Organization has designated 2021 as the International Year of Health and Care Workers to highlight the urgent need for investment to ensure such workers are supported, protected and equipped during the COVID-19 response and beyond. The discussion will highlight how long-standing partnerships and sustained investments can support strong health systems during COVID-19 and beyond.
