Resources

AFEM’s resources are Africa-specific for clinical, nursing, and pre-hospital emergency care. Our materials are almost entirely open source and provide guidance for leadership development, education and training, advocacy, and policy. Many of our resources have been written and reviewed by global leaders in emergency care.
