Sharing Intelligence, Best Practice & Lessons Learnt                        Issue 4
 
Welcome to the latest edition of the IHEEM, IFHE & IFHE EU Worldwide Update.

Remarkably we are already publishing our fourth edition of the Worldwide Update newsletter. This clearly illustrates that professional organisations and individuals have a strong desire to produce and share robust guidance and recommendations as the world moves through the COVID-19 pandemic. Further to that, I would like to draw your particular attention to the WHO articles on social distancing and mass gatherings which are fast becoming key topics as countries begin to cautiously emerge from their respective lockdowns. I hope you find them helpful. In addition, my thanks go to Eugene Conroy from ETA Projects who shares his personal experience of the development of one of the Nightingale Hospitals in London, UK. I am sure much of this will resonate with those of you who are working on the frontline. If you feel able to share your own experiences with our readership then please contact us as these articles undoubtedly help others to deal with the continued pressures of COVID-19 across the globe.

Stay safe and thank you again for your help and support.
Pete Sellars, IHEEM CEO & President IFHE-EU
