AAHCI-SEA Webinar | Mental Health of Healthcare Workers


Friday, August 28 at 9:00 am Jakarta time

AAHCI SEA regional office host Universitas Indonesia (FMUI ) organized a Webinar on “Mental Health of Healthcare Workers (HCWs) during COVID-19”. As we’ve seen globally, the spread of the novel coronavirus has challenged many nations and healthcare systems. One under-recognized and unaddressed area is that of the mental health issues that healthcare workers (HCWs) face on the frontline. HCWs, despite remaining the crisis management personnel on the frontline, are not themselves immune to the psychological consequences such as inadequate support, the feeling of burnout, inadequate PPEs, etc. This webinar discusses the challenges and lessons learned on this global issue from AAHCI members in the Southeast Asia region, with shared input from Mexico.
