Infectious Disease Planning

Ebola, MERS, Zika, Avian Flu… It’s just a matter of time before another serious infectious disease spreads across the globe.  Are you prepared?

When a serious infectious disease strikes, you need to act fast to isolate the risk and close down the means of it spreading throughout your organisation.  You need to know who is travelling, who is planning to travel and where they are!  You also need emergency medical resources and support that you can call upon swiftly.  And your plans must be fully integrated with your organisation’s overall business continuity plan.

Healix International has a wealth of experience in this area, helping multi-national corporations, governments and NGO’s develop and implement emergency response plans relating to medical emergencies globally.

We can provide you with a comprehensive range of services to ensure that your organisation is fully prepared and able to respond rapidly:
