Education

Communities hit by environmental emergencies need trained specialists to help people respond to the health and social needs that go hand in hand with living in contamined areas.

Green Cross supports medical workers and volunteers with the transfer of up-to-date knowhow on how best to treat patients under their care.

With the appropriate training, health workers are better able to respond to medical concerns, and also help people prevent chronic diseases or psychosocial disorders developing in the first place.

What we do

Across the world, Green Cross is helping boost skills of health workers and volunteers so they can provide better treatment for people affected by various kinds of environmental emergencies.

In local communities in many countries, access to training and education is hard to obtain, even for experienced paramedics, nurses and other medical staff. To fill this gap, Green Cross supports authorities and other training providers to boost the skills and awareness of healthcare workers, so they can in turn provide better care for their patients.

To care for people whose health has been hampered by ecological emergencies, and prevent the recoccurecne of such crises, Green Cross raises awareness on the physical and mental impacts of radiation and poison gas contamination.
