Through IEMH Leadership Forums held worldwide, we are creating strong collaborations between emergency medical personnel and regional stakeholders — civil authorities and leaders in medicine and government. These highly interactive forums are designed to:

  • Promote collegial relationships, understanding and peace
  • Exchange ideas to prepare for individual responses or large-scale disasters
  • Sort through regional political, social and economic realities
  • Make rapid improvements to local response systems that can be sustained without long-term need for support
  • Identify low-cost technologies that can be easily learned and maintained
  • Make the best of resources at hand
  • Build community confidence and hope
Using resources at hand
