Our Network is our Net Worth – the catchphrase on the Virtual Conference between China and Shanghai Cooperation Organization Countries for Public Health Executives and Professionals, 18-19 November 2021
Right after the 10th anniversary of the HTI, a small group of HTI team members participated in the Virtual Conference between China and Shanghai Cooperation Organization Countries for Public Health Executives and Professionals. The organizer was the Health Human Resources Development Center at the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China, supported by Peking Union Medical College Training Center, which is the Continuing Medical Education Center of Peking Union Medical College Hospital, the No. 1 hospital in China.
Leila Krešić-Jurić, HTI Managing Director & Partner, Dr. Sasan Momeni, the HTI Representative for Iran and Oman, Dr. Liudmila Andreeva, the HTI Representative for Russia and CIS countries, and Amy Wang, the HTI Representative for China, were all invited to join the virtual conference and to share their thoughts about the pandemic, international healthcare collaborations in future, and possible health exchange programs between China and their countries.
Other experts from Chinese health authorities, universities, and hospitals interacted actively with the HTI colleagues. The topics discussed include HTI’s engagement in the health tourism industry worldwide, and local experience and current situation of Covid-19, but also professional suggestions on healthcare human resources development, such as online education and training programs between China and other countries; as well as networking, and an open mind to work with others. The audience applauded HTI’s perspective: “Without a network, we are all nothing. Our network is our net worth.” Chinese organizers and participants were pleasantly surprised to talk to HTI team members, and they warmly invited them to follow up on the next steps and discuss diverse activities between the HTI and Chinese partners.
