WHO Basic Emergency Care Course

In partnership with Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and the Ministry of Health and the Division of Global Emergency Medicine at Brown University, Kate Moretti (Assistant Professor and Global Health Fellow) is working to pilot the WHO Basic Emergency Care course in Colombia to medical students prior to their year of social services, working with vulnerable populations across the country. A current baseline assessment will inform future roll-out. In addition, she is assessing the changes in Venezuelan migrants' access to healthcare in Colombia throughout the Venezuelan crisis.
