“Emergencies occur everywhere, and each day they consume resources regardless of whether there are systems capable of achieving good outcomes.” - Dr. Olive C. Kobusingye

sidHARTe – Strengthening Emergency Systems is part of the Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health in the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City. We promote locally driven and evidence-based solutions for health systems in countries with limited health resources. Partnering with national governments, universities, local associations, NGOs, and institutions, we help the integration of complex adaptive health emergency care systems with robust primary health care systems to reduce morbidity and mortality.  We accomplish this through implementation support and science, technical exchange, frontline provider capacity building, data-driven governance, and policy support.
