DUBAI: The International Medical Corps (IMC), a leading global first responder, has provided in-depth insight into ongoing humanitarian crises at a panel discussion and other conference activities to highlight the emergency response, medical, and logistical capacity building activities in the future at the 12th edition of Dubai International Humanitarian Aid and Development Conference and Exhibition, DIHAD 2015, which took place between March 24-26.
The organisation’s key leaders for the region joined global, regional and local players in the humanitarian and development sector to discuss current affairs, crisis-stricken communities and humanitarian disasters that need our undivided attention as they work together to supply vital services, enhanced medical relief, and humanitarian development and training.
Kevin Noone, Managing Director of International Medical Corps UAE, said that DIHAD is one of the important platforms that promote the culture of humanitarian work and the exchange of needed relevant knowledge.
He added that the International Medical Corps, which was established 30 years ago, is much more than just a relief agency. “While we assist those in urgent needs anywhere, anytime, no matter what the conditions, providing lifesaving health care and health care-related emergency services, we also provide training. Providing communities with knowledge and skills is an investment that benefits us all because it prepares local residents to be their own best first responders should disaster strike.”
