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.
