CRIMEDIM SUPPORTS THE CRATION OF THE FIRST NATIONAL PREHOSPITAL EMERGENCY MEDICAL SYSTEM IN SIERRA LEONE
Doctors with Africa CUAMM, CRIMEDIM and Veneto Region are involved in a major project funded by the World Bank to create a national emergency medical system in Sierra Leone.
The World Bank funded project (grant of $13 million USD) aims to release a fully staffed, equipped and functional prehospital ambulance service providing citizens of Sierra Leone with prompt, safe and effective access to healthcare in times of urgent needs and enabling the Country to leverage existing healthcare infrastructure and local expertise to maximum advantage.
CRIMEDIM is using its experience in prehospital care and emergency medicine to train local nurses and drivers who will equip the 200 ambulances of the National Emergency Medical Service (NEMS).
CRIMEDIM is present through a delegation in Sierra Leone supported by the team at our headquarters in Novara, jointly coordinating the selection and deployment of several CRIMEDIM trainers from all over the world.
