GDHN July 2022 Webinar: Outbreak READY! Scope, Story, and Sustainability: Developing an Online Simulation for Strengthening Infectious Disease Readiness
As you all know, the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated major changes in how we deliver health-related programs and information. Prior to the emergency of COVID-19, the READY initiative (funded by USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance) was already delivering workshops on operational readiness for infectious disease outbreak response. READY had also planned a series of in-person simulation activities. But when the scale of COVID-19 limited travel and in-person gatherings, READY pivoted to creating an online simulation instead.

The result is Outbreak READY!, an award-winning “serious game”, in which learners take the role of an NGO team lead managing a humanitarian program portfolio. We will hear from Hannah Hamrick, who served as Activity Lead for Outbreak READY!, on the challenges, surprises, and successes of the simulation development process.

Speaker:
Hannah Hamrick, Senior Project Manager, Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health

Moderator:
Simone Parrish, Senior Program Officer, Knowledge Management Unit, Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs
