WHO EMTCC

For the past few weeks, representatives of the Humanosh Emergency Medical Team and MSAR Poland have been working at the WHO EMTCC (Emergency Medical Team Coordination Cell) in Cairo, which was established to support the international medical teams (EMTs) providing assistance in Gaza. Together with a representative of the World Health Organization (WHO), they formed a three-person team that was responsible for all coordination of the international teams’ activities, their deployment, transfers, border crossing and formal-legal aspects.

Our EMTCC CAIRO activities began back in January and the current rotation is the third staged by our team.
These have been very intensive, multi-faceted and requiring tremendous commitment and expertise, which have brought a considerable amount of new experience.

Michal and Marcin were deployed as EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid experts through the national focal point at the State Fire Service and with the support of the Ministry of Health
