Ambulance and pre-hospital services operating in risk situations

December 9, 2015, 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Hosts: Norwegian Red Cross, Colombian Red Cross Society

Languages: English, Spanish, Arabic

Where: room 15


The objective of this side event is to highlight operational challenges and dilemmas that National Societies face when operating in risk situations, as well as to promote the exchange of experience and best practice.

The work done by National Societies from the Americas and the Middle East and North Africa regions, in developing “Best Practice for Ambulance Services in Risk Situations” will be presented at the beginning of the event. National Societies will then make short presentations of some of the challenges that they are faced with in their emergency health operations and of the context-specific solutions they have found in order to respond more safely. There will be time for questions and discussion after the presentations.

Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement actors have called for establishing a community of practice for actors responding with ambulance or pre-hospital services. This side event will also take the opportunity to formally introduce and promote this idea.
