World Health Day 2021: Surviving the Pandemic

Healthcare workers have been battling at the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic for more than a year, donning restrictive PPEs, and worrying about the risk of contracting COVID-19, all while ensuring that quality healthcare is still provided to everyone who needs it. This World Health Day, we look back on 2020 with two of our healthcare workers, to find out how they are surviving the pandemic - what have they seen and learned in 2020, and most importantly, how they’re coping emotionally and mentally.
