What We Do

We are core partners of the UK Government’s Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT), the front line of the UK’s response to a humanitarian crisis overseas.

Emergency Response

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.

Building Resilience

The health professionals based in a country affected by a disaster are First response and continued support is most effective when provided by health professionals based within the country affected.

Provide Expertise and Raise Standards

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.
