Global Emergency Medicine

According to the World Health Organization, emergency medical services are critical and essential to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Emergency care is critical for treating obstetric emergencies, for preventing road traffic accidents, providing care to the injured (https://intjem.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12245-018-0213-8). Developing emergency care systems, research and surveillance capabilities are key to preparedness for and response to disasters, conflict, and public health.

Our lab is interested in the development and integration of emergency medical services in the healthcare infrastructure of resource-limited settings and for vulnerable populations.
