At the beginning of September 2020, at the request of the Prime Minister of Kosovo, a Military Medical Team (IMMT) from Italy deployed to Kosovo to strengthen the capacity of the Kosovar healthcare operators to meet the Covid-19 pandemic by sharing the Italian front-line experience. Working closely with NATO KFOR and the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), the IMMT operated nation-wide to map capacity, review protocols, share information and train medical operators.
The webinar “Hospital Management of Covid-19 Patients: the Italian Experience for Kosovo”, under the auspices of the Italian Embassy in Kosovo and the Italian Ministry of Defence, was organized in this framework by the IMMT in two sessions on 5 and 12 October. Through several panels Italian infectologists and anesthesiologists shared with their colleagues in Kosovo their frontline experiences in the management of the pandemic, in order to support the local response to Covid-19. The event also gave the possibility to build a community of over 250 specialists who will continue to share their experience in the next future.
The Embassy of Italy in Kosovo is pleased to make recordings of the two webinar sessions available, both in the English original and in Albanian and Serbian translation.
Session 1 (5 October 2020)
Session 2 (12 October 2020)
