At the invitation of the Secretariat of the WHO-Emergency Medical Team’s(EMT), RSB’s CMCoord(Zein Tayyeb), UNDAC(Peter Muller) and INSARAG(Winston Chang) unit heads were invited as panel speakers at the EMT Global Meeting 2022 in Armenia. Over 500 participants from 100 countries and organizations took part from 5-7 October.
The event provided the EMT network an opportunity to define the milestones for a longer EMT strategy—EMT 2030. The main goal of the EMT 2030 strategy is to identify milestones that strengthen National EMT capacities as part of the global health emergency preparedness, response, and resilience (HEPR) architecture, very much in line with RSB/ERS’s localisation agenda through strengthening community resilience to deal with sudden onset disasters.
The interoperability of EMTs with CMCoord, UNDAC and INSARAG were presented and discussed. The collective synergies of all our networks working in harmony, in accordance to internationally recognised coordination arrangements, were once again reaffirmed in this meeting.
