Discussion 1: NGO in Global Health Purpose Discussion board assignments provide you the opportunity to share what you have learned in this course, and to learn from your peers by participating in a discussion. Overview The willingness to respond to public health emergencies by a healthcare workforce is an important consideration for an all-hazards response capacity and health security. It is important to understand the capacity and capabilities of the local responders and health care workers to respond to threats. Several studies suggest that healthcare workers may not be adequately trained to respond and work in an austere environment or during times of disaster.
