Emergency Response, International, WHO standards, First Aid
In 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) set guidelines deciding what the standard for emergency care is on the world stage. Now that two years have past countries need to be assessed to determine compliance to these standards. The question we wanted to answer was if international Emergency Medial Systems (EMS) are meeting the WHO standards (organized dispatch system, basic life support, a way to transport patients, and a receiving emergency department) and if they are also meeting the gold standard (as defined by professionals which will be listed in results).
