SingHealth announced programme to train healthcare workers in disaster-prone Makassar
SingHealth will partner Hasanuddin University to provide a specialised disaster preparedness programme for Indonesian healthcare workers.
Medical experts from Singapore's hospitals will train 430 healthcare workers from disaster-prone Makassar.
They will be taught how to manage the inital phase of disaster emergencies, provide support at disaster sites and to organise and manage casualties.
Once trained, these healthcare workers can pass on their knowledge to others.
SingHealth's Group Chief Executive Officer, Professor Ivy Ng, believes the programme will have a lasting impact, and also improve SingHealth's own disaster medical education programmes.
