Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Technical Guidance: Essential Resource Planning
To gauge the need for supplies/equipment and health workforce requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic, WHO has developed a suite of complementary surge calculators -- one for supplies and two for the health workforce. 

All tools use the same base epidemiologic assumptions and classify the health workforce using standardized International Labor Organization International Standard Classification of Occupations codes, but their outputs are intentionally different due to their primary focus.

WHO Donations of in-kind critical items (Added Apr-23, International)
Proud Recognition and Thanks to our Colleagues!
Very important that our community of medical device servicers -- around the globe -- receive recognition and support for their hard work.

Like the men and women who keep our military fleet of fighters, ships, tanks, and every last piece of electrical, pneumatic, and mechanical devices safe, reliable, and service-ready, the massive community of Biomedical Equipment Technicians (BMETs), Clinical Engineers (CEs), and Field Service Professionals (FEPs) are often working quietly on the front lines 24x7 in hospitals ensuring patients, physicians, and nurses have as many devices as possible saving lives, not sitting on shelves or in closets.

THANK YOU all for your hard and skillful work in the midst of this crisis.

Elliot Sloane & The IFMBE CED Board
Thank you,
