In supporting efforts to manage health crises more optimally, the Health Crisis Center held an activity to increase the capacity of health workers at the Provincial and District/City Health Offices in managing Health Crisis information data. . The activity was opened by
the Head of the Health Crisis Center, Dr. dr. Eka Jusup Singka, M.Sc, Tuesday, August 30, 2022. In his direction, he conveyed
"Efforts to manage health crises, both pre-and post-term, must be supported by fast, accurate and valid data and information". Another thing that was conveyed was that crisis management uses the Risk equivalent to Hazard formula, that the higher the hazard, the greater the risk, as well as vulnerability, and inversely proportional to capacity, the higher the capacity, the less risk. For this reason, efforts to increase capacity need to be carried out on an ongoing basis. In his directive, he also conveyed the importance of Emergency Medical Team (EMT) registration. This aims to map the capacity of health human resources who are ready to be mobilized, responding quickly to the health impacts of disasters and health crises.
The activity will last until Friday, September 2, 2022, in Bogor Regency, with 44 participants who are representatives from the Provincial and Regency/City Health Offices, as well as resource persons from BNPB and the Health Crisis Center.
With the implementation of this capacity-building activity, it is hoped that the regions will be able to manage crisis data and information at all stages and can utilize information technology so that the delivery of data and information becomes faster. In addition, the data and information held can be used as the basis for making policies, programs, and activities for reducing the risk of health crises, and for better responses.
