The goal of Project 47 is to assess the current state and locations of emergency departments in all 47 counties in Kenya, identify gaps, and set priority actions for use by County Governments, planners and partners as a roadmap toward universal emergency care coverage.

The Emergency Care Symposium is an annual event  bringing together close to 500 delegates from all over the world. We garner a prestigious panel of international speakers and experts from around Kenya who promote emergency care in Kenya and provide the latest in evidence-based emergency care practices. The target audience includes healthcare providers/students (doctors, pharmacists, clinical officers, nurses, and prehospital providers), policy makers and interested members of the public.

The Injury Prevention and Safety Initiative (TIPSI©)is an independent initiative under the Emergency Medicine Kenya Foundation (EMKF) that brings together local health care professionals to improve injury outcomes in Kenya.

The Emergency Care Equipment project (ECUIP©) aims to empower public emergency departments across the country to better handle medical emergencies through the donation of emergency care equipment and the provision of educational resources, training etc.

The Emergency Care Algorithms are a compilation of evidence-based guidelines designed to help emergency care providers make decisions about appropriate emergency care for specific circumstances both in well-resourced and limited-resource settings.
