COVID-19 has impacted almost all dimensions of society, including for example; health, the economy, and food security. We have learnt that this unprecedented pandemic cannot be handled by a government alone, rather it requires a range of stakeholders coming together with a common purpose; to fight against COVID-19 and its negative impacts. COVID-19 has highlighted that a multi-sectoral collaborative approach is essential in a time of crisis. However, implementing and maintaining this multi-sectoral approach during and post COVID-19 is a challenge. Once the crisis subsides will the lessons learnt on multi-sectoral collaboration fade away?
The ultimate objective of this webinar series is to seek answers on how to make multi-sectoral collaboration sustainable, what are the enabling factors for multi-sectoral collaboration, how can they these factors be maintained when the COVID-19 situation improves and how can we apply multi-sectoral collaboration lessons from the COVID-19 response to future health crisis.
This webinar is the final series of five webinars on multisectoral collaboration in response to COVID-19, organized by the National Health Commission Office (NHCO) of Thailand. For this final webinar, the NHCO is partnering with the Ministry of Public Health, Thailand, International Federation Medical Students Association of Thailand and the World Health Organization.
The first webinar was organized in June to discuss the role of civil society in multisectoral collaboration against COVID-19, followed by the second webinar in August focusing on the role of young generation, the third webinar in September on the role of government and the fourth webinar in October on the role of health sector. For each webinar, a report is produced and can be seen at https://en.nationalhealth.or.th/all-publication/. The synthesis of these webinar reports will be presented in the final webinar at the side meeting of National Health Assembly of Thailand on 14 December 2020.
National Health Assembly (NHA) is a participatory process of developing public policies and moving the policies into action. Constituencies from government sector, academia/professional sector and people sector participate the policy process on an equal basis starting from agenda setting to resolution drafting, consultation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. NHA adheres to participatory democracy which aims to open a space for dialogue and understanding of different views in the society.
