Outbreak READY 2!: Estatierra en crisis Descripción general

Outbreak READY 2!: Estatierra en crisis is an online digital simulation designed for humanitarian health practitioners. In Outbreak READY 2!: Estatierra en crisis, you take the role of a Health Program Manager leading the health response for a medium-sized, international NGO named READY. The NGO operates in Thisland, a fictitious, low-income country that has experienced recent civil conflict, mass displacement, and an influenza epidemic. The simulation is divided into three chapters that follow an evolving outbreak from the first detection to its spread throughout the population. As Health Program Manager, you will identify, assess, and interpret sources of data to plan and implement an integrated outbreak response that prioritizes communication and community engagement, protection principles, and staff safety and well-being.


Outbreak READY 2!: Estatierra en crisis builds upon but is independent from Outbreak READY!, READY’s first digital outbreak simulation, in which the learner takes the role of a Team Lead during the aforementioned influenza epidemic. While Outbreak READY 2!: Estatierra en crisis takes place after the events of Outbreak READY!, it is not necessary to play Outbreak READY! before playing Outbreak READY 2!: Estatierra en crisis.

The simulation is designed for national and international NGOs responding to humanitarian emergencies, particularly targeting NGO health staff, including health program managers and coordinators, RCCE focal points, and community health workers.

Outbreak READY 2!: Estatierra en crisis provides learners an opportunity to test and apply the following skills:

  1. Epidemiología aplicada a la respuesta clínica y de salud pública.: Implementar y coordinar una respuesta sanitaria basada en datos a un brote de enfermedades infecciosas en evolución.
  2. Comunicación efectiva y participación comunitaria.: Developing and implementing a Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) strategy using a data-driven approach.
  3. Humanitarian Leadership: Minimizar los riesgos y vulnerabilidades para las personas, el personal y los socios afectados por la crisis durante la respuesta a un brote.
