PROJECT 47 | Emergency Departments in 47 Counties

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.

Emergency Care Training

EMK Foundation Training programs are designed by local emergency care experts to enable the health workforce to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to respond with confidence to emergency situations and to deliver safe, evidence-based quality emergency care in any setting. Our programs encourage candidates to apply the knowledge and skills learnt within the context of the policies of the employing health service and within each individual’s own scope of practice. The programs are designed to meet the learning needs of health workforce working in emergency care settings (Community Health Workers (CHWs/CHVs), Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), Nurses, Clinical Officers and Medical Officers) who may be required to provide emergency care to the critically ill or injured patient.

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.
