Meeting between the Seoul Medical Center & CityNet

On June 19, the CityNet Secretariat visited Seoul Medical Center and had a meeting with Kwan-Young Song, the President of Seoul Medical Center, Jae-Pil Choi, the Senior Official of Seoul Medical Center, and Soon Woong Han, the Manager of Cooperative & Development Department. This opportunity was used to introduce some of CityNet’s recent activities on COVID-19, discuss ways through which CityNet and Seoul Medical Center can cooperate in the future.

The Seoul Medical Center is a public hospital under Seoul Metropolitan Government, established in 1977. In 2018, a delegation of CityNet Indonesian members also made a visit to the Seoul Medical Center for a study visit on healthy cities and hospital management to learn the medical and administrative services of Korean hospitals, as well as the management system of emergency center and isolation units.

While fighting the spread of #COVID19, countering measures like lockdowns and social distancing have affected informal workers disproportionately, who suffered from a higher risk of falling into extreme #poverty, as their economic activities were severely disrupted by those measures.

Informal workers usually work in poor occupational safety and health surroundings with poor access to social protection services. They are easily exposed to the risk of illness and injury. Even before the pandemic, access to healthcare was almost out of reach for these workers because the cost of such services was far too high for their earning.

This virtual event will discuss various approaches to social protection with a focus on informal workers in the pandemic situation, and explore how social protection can be applied in different contexts. Participants will be given an opportunity to share their own case studies and get engaged in designing #ActionPlans for better implementation of social protection strategies in line with their own national and local context.
