The BID Learning Network (BLN) and Asia eHealth Information Network (AeHIN) are holding a series of virtual panel discussions on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on primary health care service delivery. This is the second discussion in a three-part series, featuring the health worker perspective. These interactions are intended to promote mutual learning between public, private, and international health care practitioners for the improvement of health care service delivery. The discussions are aimed at addressing the challenges encountered and lessons learned by health facilities and practitioners in service provision during the COVID-19 pandemic. Speakers will also discuss the measures put in place to minimize the spread of the epidemic and strategies to mitigate the impact of COVID-19.
