Save the Children’s Emergency Health Unit
delivers rapid, quality public healthcare for children and their families caught up in climate disasters, conflicts and fast-spreading disease outbreaks.
The Emergency Health Unit has four rapid response teams combining health and operational specialists in one team: doctors, nurses, midwives, team leaders, logisticians and water and sanitation experts. They are trained to tackle lethal disease outbreaks, administer life-saving medical care and treat malnourished children. Our teams are fully equipped with mobile clinics, field hospitals, life-saving drugs, and high-energy nutrition supplements.
