Primary objectives and outcomes
The end of the COVID-19 pandemic remains out of sight. To overcome challenges in these times of uncertainty, Japan has set the goal of leaving no one's health behind. JICA is taking a holistic approach to address issues related to the pandemic and health security in partner countries by focusing on prevention, precaution and treatment. Using this approach, it hopes to contribute to the protection of people's lives as the urgent target and build increasingly resilient societies over time.
Content of the discussions
In this 10th webinar, different countries' experiences and lessons of reorganization of health service delivery during the pandemic, the so called "surge capacity", are presented. To respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and sustain other health services, countries have been required to rapidly increase and reorganize health service delivery capacity, such as the availability of hospital beds, allocation of the health workforce, and so on. Some countries may have already had a legal framework to enable such rapid increase, and others may have to take new approaches. In the webinar, JICA Ogata RI research group member, Dr. Sakamoto, shared a preliminary analysis of an international comparative study, and case studies from Japan, Kenya, Vietnam and Thailand were shared by the other speakers.
