nepal patient careDISASTER RESPONSE TEAM

When a major international disaster strikes, HHI deploys a team of highly qualified responders equipped to rapidly respond as a self-contained mobile medical team.

The Disaster Response Team (DRT) works in disaster zones to provide medical care including triage, first aid, stabilization and referral of severe trauma, as well as basic emergency care of pediatrics, obstetric and metal health needs. Backed by top-notch HHI logistical support, the DRT members can focus on the task at hand – helping victims of disaster.

If you are a medical or logistical professional with international response experience or similar skills, we want you!

We are recruiting volunteers in these fields:  Nurses, Physicians/Midlevel Providers (Emergency Medicine, General Practitioner, Family Medicine, Pediatrics), EMT/Paramedics, Physical Therapists, Mental Health, Logistics, Administration, Security

Please contact our deployment coordinator to express your interest and begin the application process.
