Thousands of healthcare workers are presently in the frontline working to minimise the effects of COVID-19 pandemic. Several doctors, nurses and other essential health workers have been infected and lost their lives to the virus. This has shown us that we cannot continue as before; despite this massive damage, it however offers us an unparalleled opportunity to support others; especially the most vulnerable such as healthcare workers in the frontline..
360degreeHealth Network is a non-profit organization that provides free to affordable healthcare services to vulnerable communities. The organization launched the initiative ”Protecting Front-line Health Workers To Zero COVID-19” to provide healthcare workers with essential resources to tackle the pandemic. The initiative aims to educate over 500,000 healthcare providers on emergency preparedness to tackle the pandemic.
As part of its project; 360degreeHealth Network collaborated with the London Professional Training Center in Lagos to provide FREE training on 𝙄𝙉𝙁𝙀𝘾𝙏𝙄𝙊𝙉 𝙋𝙍𝙀𝙑𝙀𝙉𝙏𝙄𝙊𝙉 𝘼𝙉𝘿 𝘾𝙊𝙉𝙏𝙍𝙊𝙇 to healthcare workers. The training was however sponsored through the One Young World Covid-19 fund to support youth led initiatives working to minimize the effects of COVID-19 outbreak in Nigeria.
The present coronavirus pandemic has proven that our global health system has failed and we cannot go back to the old one. We have to create new approaches, systems and institutions to create a new world based on sustainability for the future.
The time to act is Now!
