Our medical teams respond to health emergencies around the world. We also work with local teams to help them prepare for future threats.
There are only a small number of international agencies and WHO verified Emergency Medical Teams capable of responding globally, at speed and scale, to spikes in need.
First response and continued support is most effective when provided by health professionals based within the country affected.
There are not enough trained medical and coordination staff globally as there are challenges recruiting, retaining and training the numbers required to meet growing need.
