Summary

Global Emergency Care has launched the Emergency Action Fund in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Now, more than ever, your support of GEC is critical. Our Emergency Care Practitioners (ECPs) are some of the only specialist emergency care providers in Uganda and are the most equipped to deal with the COVID-19 crisis there. They are on the front lines of this pandemic as it spreads across Uganda, and are the communities' best hope for triaging COVID-19 symptoms and providing quality patient care.

Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit every country in the world. In Uganda, GEC's Emergency Care Practitioners (ECPs) are some of the only specialist emergency care providers in the entire country. They are on the front lines of this pandemic as it spreads across Uganda, and are the communities' best hope for fighting this virus and preventing unmitigated community spread.

Solution

To respond to this crisis, we are launching the Emergency Action Fund to make sure the courage of health workers on the front lines is honored with meaningful support, and the people most at risk in this pandemic are cared for. This project will help Uganda respond to: 1) The local COVID-19 crisis by providing equipment, supplies, resources, and knowledge sharing to our ground teams; 2) The long-term surveillance of COVID-19 in the country; and 3) Other public health threats in the future.

Long-Term Impact

Although how the pandemic will unfold in the coming months is unknown, we have developed the following strategies to mitigate the long-term effects: 1) Providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to safeguard health workers 2) Training specialist Emergency Care Practitioners who are the first line of surveillance against Covid-19 & other infectious disease outbreaks 3) Collaborating with infectious disease epidemiologists, clinicians, & public health experts to support the Covid-19 response
