On May 8th, be a part of the conversation as SAJIDA Foundation hosts an intriguing webinar: 'COVID Landscape in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs): Lessons Learnt from Experience and Impact.'
COVID-19 has had a significant impact on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) globally, and it is crucial that we work together to build a more resilient future. LMICs with weak health systems are struggling to cope with the pandemic, and the prevalence of comorbidities has increased the risk of direct and indirect consequences on our populations. The pandemic's impact and associated restrictions on mental health have also raised widespread concern, with recent evidence showing an increase in mental health problems.
To share experiences of COVID-19, SAJIDA Foundation is hosting a webinar titled "COVID Landscape in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs): Lessons Learnt from Experience and Impact."
The webinar will be inaugurated by Zahida Fizza Kabir, Chief Executive Officer of SAJIDA Foundation.
The first session will be chaired by Zarina Nahar Kabir, PhD, an Associate Professor in the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences, and Society at Karolinska Institutet. Speakers will present their research findings on the challenges of COVID-19 in LMICs from the perspectives of patients, healthcare providers, and family members, and discuss post-COVID-19 mental and physical health impacts.
The second session will be chaired by Ahmed Mushtaque Raza Chowdhury, PhD, Professor of Population and Family Health at Columbia University and Adviser to the James P. Grant School of Public Health at BRAC University. Speakers will present findings on LMIC responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and lessons to be learned from the experience of a Bangladeshi NGO.
