The resolution aims helping countries to ensure timely care for the acutely ill and injured. They estimate that more than 50% of all deaths in low- and middle income countries result from conditions that could be treated with prehospital and emergency care. Studies have ranked components of emergency care as among the most cost-effective public health interventions.
Strengthening prehospital care by training community-based providers and using staffed community ambulances has been estimated to cost less than US$ 100 per life saved, and has been shown to reduce mortality by 25-50% in some low- and middle-income country contexts.
