The Liveable Cities Challenge (LCC), in partnership with the League of Cities of the Philippines and Globe Telecom, is set to host another timely discussion on how cities are addressing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their health care systems and society in general.
For its third lab in 2021, LCC and Globe will present the LCC Labs: Resilient Public Health Systems on June 2, 2021, Wednesday, 3-5pm.
The webinar will feature Dr. Manuel Dayrit, former Secretary of the Department of Health, Undersecretary Leopoldo Vega of the Department of Health, and Mayor Vico Sotto of Pasig City. Representatives from AC Health and Health Now will also join the discussion.
Dayrit will discuss Strengthening the Public Health System in Cities while Vega will present the One Hospital Command System. Sotto, on the other hand, will share the city's experience and learnings in responding to the challenges and impact of the pandemic.
Their insights are expected to provide important information and solutions that could help cities enhance their public health systems, which is critical in addressing the continuing challenges brought about by COVID-19.
Interested parties and stakeholders are encouraged to sign up now.
