GERMIN and the Global Albanians Foundation are working together to establish the “Global Albanian Health Professionals COVID-19 Response Team” — a collaborative network of Albanians working in health care, public health and research and involved in the fight against COVID in all corners of the world.
We invite all Albanian professionals working in the health sector to participate in this 10 minute survey to create a Global Albanians COVID-19 Response Team Network that will provide a concrete opportunity for strengthening the joint COVID response and will contribute to the ongoing response efforts led by the Ministries of Health of Albania and Kosovo.
Germin and the GAF would like to emphasize that this survey is not intended to be exclusive to the Albanian Diaspora. We strongly encourage participation from those of you who live and work in Albania, Kosova, Northern Macedonia, and Montenegro to participate and be part of this initiative. We need to build a strong global network since this is the only way to improve cooperation and collaboration for our collective success.
We have these main objectives:
Create a Global Network of Albanian Healthcare Professionals, Public Health Professionals, Researchers, and others working in the healthcare sector which could develop and contribute ideas for policy recommendations and measures to address the COVID-19 outbreak in Albania, Kosova, and Northern Macedonia.
Develop collaborative relationships between Albanian Diaspora Professionals and public, private, not-for-profit, and international organizations in Albania, Kosova, and Northern Macedonia.
Organize online meetings and panel discussions where Albanian Healthcare and Public Health Professionals, Researchers, and others working in the healthcare sector can come together to discuss issues related to the COVID-19 response.
Develop a moderated online platform to provide resources for response to the COVID-19 pandemic and share information and experiences from around the world to help develop capacity and critically assess policies and interventions in our homeland countries.
Prepare a position paper on pandemic response in Kosova and Albania considering the latest evidence and contextual factors.
This survey is not intended to be exclusive to the Diaspora. We need to build a database and network that includes professionals from all countries where Albanians live to improve cooperation and collaboration in the fight against COVID-19 in Albania, Kosova, and Northern Macedonia.If you have additional questions or suggestions you may contact us at [email protected]. All responses are confidential Thank you very much for your time and you can return to the survey here.
The survey will close on Monday, April 20, at 00:00.
Germin is a non-governmental organization whose core principles and ideals are based on the belief that the Albanian diaspora must play an extensive and proactive role in the positive development of all countries in the Balkans where Albanians live.
