Mission

GECC's mission is to improve global health by creating or improving access to quality emergency care in the developing world. GECC works with local partners in resource-poor areas to create quality sustainable emergency care systems in developing nations through development of emergency departments and training of local providers.

Programs

GECC's pilot project has been at Karoli Lwanga (Nyakibale) Hospital in rural southwestern Uganda. GECC has assisted the hospital in the creation of an emergency department and has been training emergency nurse practitioners (ENPs) to independently provide emergency care services. GECC has been evaluating its training program and tracking patient outcomes; preliminary data demonstrate lower child mortality rates at this site compared to other similar locations in Uganda and sub-Saharan Africa.
