The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) was officially launched in 2014 with the generous donation from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust (The Trust). Housed in and led by the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine, the HKJCDPRI aims to build a prepared community in Hong Kong to respond to disasters.
With our academic and community partners, we provide a platform for comprehensive training, research, policy discussion and knowledge exchange to enhance our knowledge in building resilience in the community. We believe in the blended learning approach in using mixed modalities including a-learning, face-to-face teaching, simulation-based experiential learning and field-based exercises to drive learning impact and transfer knowledge into practice.
