    World Health Organization Emergency Medical Teams Website


    This website provides a description of the EMTs. It provides current international involvement of the EMT and updates on current crises. The Emergency Medical Teams (EMTs) are an important part of the global health workforce and have a specific role. Any doctor, nurse or paramedic team coming from another country to practice healthcare in an emergency needs to come as a member of a team. That team must have quality, training and equipment/supplies so it can respond with success rather than impose a burden on the national system. EMTs must strive for self-sufficiency, a quality of care that is appropriate for the context, with credentials that meet a minimum acceptable standard.
