Our Mission

To making lifesaving medical care available to all Ugandans

GEC developed and runs a two-year, emergency medicine, train-the-trainer program for non-physician clinicians, in collaboration with local and national institutions. This is building a scalable emergency care system, with our graduates teaching courses.

Every year, thousands of people in Uganda, many of them children, die needlessly because they don’t have access to quality emergency care. In a country that currently lacks any emergency care physicians, many are dying from easily treatable conditions such as diarrhea, pneumonia, malaria, or injuries because they don’t get the right care or any care at all. Global Emergency Care (GEC) saves lives by teaching healthcare providers how to recognize and treat these illnesses and injuries quickly and effectively.
What we do works. Since 2009, GEC-trained Emergency Care Practitioners (ECPs) have treated more than 60,000 patients who otherwise would not have received this care. Many more patients are surviving due to the training we’ve provided. Our goal is to grow the program so that all Ugandans will have access to lifesaving emergency care.

Global Emergency Care (GEC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded and run by U.S. board certified Emergency Physicians dedicated to build emergency care infrastructure. By training providers from multiple health cadres in acute care delivery for the full continuum of illness and injury, GEC is developing a sustainable, horizontal, emergency care system.
