Build Health International is helping partners and ministries of health in low resource settings prepare and cope with COVID-19. They are tasked with designing generic treatment center prototypes and developing protocols and guidelines for the integration of the infrastructure with treatment and infection control, in areas where healthcare treatment and settings may be scarce and below standards of care.

We are calling for architects, designers, engineers, the construction industry, and healthcare professionals to join in a collaborative design charette to review a preliminary schema, then break out into groups to propose new ideas, improve solutions, and methods of delivery for this prototype solution.

Due to the COVID-19 global outbreak, this design charrette will occur via web.
We will limit participation to 60 participants.
Outcomes from this event will directly inform BHI's open-access infrastructure resources, as well as our direct response in 11 countries across Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa.

Please RSVP to receive Zoom meeting information.
