Emergency Care and Global Health

"Over the past decade limited advocacy from health-delivery fields has led to an agenda that emphasizes prevention while giving inadequate attention to strengthening health care. Though prevention is essential, acute care specialties that provide frontline treatment for sudden or unexpected illness or injury, like emergency medicine, trauma surgery, neurosurgery and many others,  need to take immediate and sustained action to highlight the importance of the services they provide.

 

Aligning key players to support developing countries in planning and building capacity for the best mix of acute and preventive services is an urgent priority with the potential to save and improve millions of lives..."
