Twitter for iPhone : The Ministry of Health in partnership with @seed_global will hold the second Emergency Medical Services ECHO today at 2pm. This session will focus on the ABCDE approach to an emergency patient which is the foundation of Emergency Care.


Twitter Web App : Almost 2 yrs into global pandemic, we have much deeper experience with its undulating course and our most consistently effective tools and policies: masks, social distancing, testing, contact tracing, health workers – and vaccines. Panic and reaction not included.

Twitter for iPhone : I applaud the EMS team upon attaining this key milestone that will see great transformation to the emergency and critical services in the country. I applaud all arms of gov’t that have contributed to seeing this policy through. Now lets all play our part in its implementation🙏.

Twitter for Android : Over half of deaths in low & middle income countries are caused by conditions that can be addressed by effective emergency care.

The Emergency Medical Services Policy is prioritising HR needs for effective handling of these situations as & when they arise.
