In collaboration with China Communications Construction Company Ltd. (CCCC), GX held its first global health community knowledge webinar event on 10th December 2020. This train-the-trainer programme was attended by more than 3,000 representatives and employees of CCCC across 102 countries. Co-hosted by GX headquarters and CCCC headquarters in Beijing, China, this 2-hour online event aimed to update CCCC’s overseas staff community of 100,000 people on the latest health knowledge and management challenges related to COVID-19.
Five global experts were invited to discuss global pandemic trends and challenges posed by COVID-19 on physical and mental well-being, public health, and occupational health at field and operations levels. Implications of the latest scientific and clinical research on staff protection, policy, and global operations were also discussed.
This is one of the flagship webinar events of the 2020 Global Health Community Knowledge Programme series. The global online series intends to support technical capacity building for Health-Emergency and Disaster Risk Management, one of the main themes of GX’s global mission and operations, along the Belt and Road countries.
