The "Program-at-a-Glance" is now available on Congress website.

Workshop hosts include the Emergency Medicine Society of South Africa (EMSSA), National Library of Medicine (NLM), Evidence Aid, World Health Organization (WHO), WADEM Student Mentorship Program, and much more!
This year's theme, Creating Capacity, Building Resilience, includes topics within the spectrum of humanitarian disaster impacts to global health systems and prehospital and crisis response.
