Staying Prepared Against Future Pandemics

The COVID-19 global situation has heightened the need for countries to collaborate and better prepare their healthcare systems to withstand future pandemics.

To increase the resilience of healthcare systems in South Asia, Temasek Foundation partnered with Singapore Health Services to design a training programme on field hospital design and pandemic response management. The programme focused on the rapid response needed during the onset of a pandemic – particularly the set-up and clinical management of community healthcare facilities, hospital infrastructure design and facilities planning.

A three-day programme was conducted online in December 2021. It covered topics such as Singapore’s pandemic response and management, designing and managing temporary isolation facilities, and future facility design for unknown disease outbreaks. Some 120 healthcare professionals from India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal participated in the programme.
