COVID-19 Pandemic Resilience Building for Low-Resource Settings

red speech bubble with white text: Doctors Worldwide officially launches Pandemic Resilience Building project to support COVID-19 healthcare responses in low resource settings

As the world faces its first pandemic in living memory, it is the most vulnerable communities with little or no access to healthcare who will face the greatest consequences and lives lost. Humanitarian organisations therefore have a collective responsibility to urgently prepare the local communities, partners and organisations who make up to 90% of first responders in any worldwide crisis. With governments in lockdown, borders closed, and airports grounded, humanitarian organisations are reminded once again that we must fulfil a core role of supporting local partners to stand on their own two feet, and that we must collectively work together as enablers in this worldwide crisis affecting us all. 

COVID-19 Pandemic Resilience Building:

As part of our 2021 COVID-19 response activities, we will be supporting healthcare organisations and practitioners in low resource settings, focusing on resilience building through delivering a series of COVID-19 webinars, participating in Telemedicine support, offering peer support through a dedicated WhatsApp group, and providing simple, easy to apply COVID-19 patient management flow charts designed for low resource settings. We are currently in conversation with partners in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and India, however our intention is to provide global support as we continue to engage with more healthcare workers. 

Educational themes for our webinars will consist of, but are not limited to:

  • Clinical management of COVID-19
  • Management on COVID-19 resurgence in low resource settings
  • COVID-19 Vaccine Education, Uptake and Community Engagement 
  • Case Management Flow Charts, Care Pathways, and COVID-19 Protocols 
  • DWW COVID-19 checklists training

Support and mentorship will consist of: 

  • Supporting low/middle resource frontline workers in Whatsapp groups
  • Zoom conference calls for questions and advice in managing COVID-19 response 
  • One-to-one clinical mentorship via Zoom
