Ensuring timely, accessible and quality lifesaving emergency care in Kenya
The Kenya Emergency Medical Care (EMC) Policy 2020-2030 is the first-ever policy in Kenya that seeks to establish a working Emergency Medical Care (EMC) System as a key component of the healthcare system in the country.
Part of our COVID-19 initiatives has been to improve the delivery of oxygen to patients in the emergency department in the county healthcare facilities with the highest numbers of COVID-19 cases.
UPCOMING & RECENT EVENTS
EMK Foundation in collaboration with the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) conducted a 5-day simulation-based emergency care training (TECC) for the healthcare workers working in the emergency departments at the Mbagathi and Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospitals in Nairobi.
This year, EMK Foundation hosted the 5th African Conference on Emergency Medicine (#AfCEM20). #AfCEM20 featured more than 500 emergency care professionals from across Africa and other regions of the world and hours of intensive education.
There are 6 life-threatening causes of chest pain. In this open mic session sponsored by bioMérieux, we tackled the approach to a patient presenting with chest pain and how to diagnose a heart attack or a blood clot in the lungs (pulmonary embolism) both of which can be rapidly fatal.
