Just 15 years ago, before India's national ambulance service, Indian citizens needing emergency medical attention were on their own.
On the occasion of its 15th anniversary, India's national ambulance service marks a major milestone. Hailed as perhaps one of the most important global health initiatives of the last ten years, the Emergency Management and Research Institute (EMRI), serves 750 million Indian citizens and has saved 1.5 million lives.
Emergency medicine physician S. V. Mahadevan and a team of experts from the Stanford School of Medicine have been with the program since its early inception. Collaborating closely with their Indian colleagues, they helped shape the current form of EMRI, its training programs, and capacity building efforts.
