Regional Emergency and Critical Care Systems Strengthening Initiative


The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has funded the Regional Emergency and Critical Care Systems Strengthening Initiative (RECSI) under its Regional Health Partnerships (RHP) scheme, with activities commencing in July 2024. RECSI aims to build on the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in relation to the need for local critical care capacity, and the value of resilient emergency care systems in detecting and responding to health emergencies. RECSI will also act as a mechanism for embedding the World Health Organisation’s emergency care systems framework across the region and progressing World Health Assembly resolutions 72.16 and 76.2. 


RECSI will be delivered through a consortium of organisations including Alfred Health, Monash University, the Australian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM), the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS), the National Critical Care and Trauma Centre (NCCTRC), the Pacific Community (SPC), St Johns Ambulance Papua New Guinea (SJA PNG), and Menzies School of Health Research.
