Health ministry launches Emergency Medical Care Policy


Aman said implementation of the policy focuses on priority areas such as investment in EMC infrastructure, Emergency Command and Control Centers; Ambulance Coordination System and dispatch centres; information and communication technology, as well as strengthening leadership and governance at all levels.

The CS also inaugurated the emergency medical care steering committee.

In his speech, Aman said that at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, the ministry initiated a single short-code toll-free emergency access number, 719 which was supported by a dedicated 24-hour.

Aman said the dedicated Covid-19 ambulances were also dispatched through the same service to provide emergency care and evacuation for patients across the country to dedicated treatment centres.
