We are on the right track!
Last Saturday, the world health organization, WHO, launched their Global Emergency and Trauma Care Initiative.
The goal is to “ensure that millions of people around the world have access to the timely, life-saving care they deserve.” said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom.
WHO will support low- and middle income countries to assess their emergency healthcare and improve the care given. This is great news for the millions of people who lack timely emergency care. Rural Trauma Initiative is a great complement, teaching people what to do and how to act while waiting for advanced care. It will hopefully buy patients valuable, life-saving, time.
