The Global Emergency Care Conference

Join us for this year's theme on Integrated acute care: building effective ECO systems.


Monday 9 September - Tuesday 10 September, 2024





The Global Emergency Care Conference is an annual two-day event.  It is designed to equip emergency care providers with the skills, resources and networks to become involved in the development of global emergency care, particularly in resource-limited settings.


Monday 9 September 2024 | 9.00am – 5.00pm (AEST)

A small group, interactive workshop that utilises real-world scenarios to help you to develop the skills you need to successfully engage in emergency care projects around the world.

This in-depth one-day program is developed and delivered by a team of clinicians with extensive experience working with multiple aid/health organisations in countries such as Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa and Afghanistan.

Explore and discuss:

  • The current status of emergency care globally

  • The identified priorities for global emergency care development projects and clinicians

  • How to complete a needs assessment

  • How to create, develop and deliver a project framework

  • The essential toolkit of skills, networks and resources an emergency care clinician requires.


This event will be delivered both in-person and virtually from Melbourne, Australia.


Tuesday 10 September 2024 | 9.00am – 5.00pm (AEST)

A one-day, hybrid symposium bringing together a wealth of local and international speakers with unparalleled expertise in emergency care practice, education and research in resource-limited settings. Be inspired by incredible projects and learn more about what’s planned. The program will include opportunities for interaction and networking. It will open your eyes to your potential to impact global health outcomes.

Learn more about the World Health Organization's vision for emergency, critical and operative (ECO) care at the Annual Global Emergency Care Conference. This year’s event will explore World Health Assembly (WHA) Resolution 76.2: 'Integrated ECO care for universal health coverage and protection from health emergencies'. Passed by the WHA in 2023, this resolution represents a powerful call by 80 WHO member states to strengthen health systems for the delivery of high-quality ECO services.
