This week's episode of African Health Dialogues focuses on EMS (Emergency Medical Services) in African countries, whether starting in their infancy or up and running.
What is the experience of those establishing or running and EMS programs in Africa? Does the current model work, do we need to localize it for the African context -- given that there is often differences in availability of medical facilities, welfare provision, accessibility to EMS and trained staff and equipment?
We hope to spur a renewed awareness of sustainable health initiatives, performance reviews, and the need for networks of physicians' and pharmacists' interests in exchanging information and improving the overall health care services in Africa.
