Current emergency and acute care research in resource-limited settings include:
- Rwanda: analysis of prehospital and in-hospital venues with foci on epidemiological characteristics, resource utilization, impacts of EM training and process measures and outcomes.
- Kenya: incorporates EM training in Nairobi at the Aga Khan University and the role of ultrasound and trauma training in acute care provision in urban and semi-urban settings
- American Samoa: maintains a longitudinal research cohort that is assessing the role of trauma care training among a diverse group of emergency care providers using mixed didactic and simulations training methods
- Haiti: In the North East Department of Haiti research evaluating the utility of point of care ultrasound on emergency and acute obstetrics care is being undertaken in conjunction with local and international partners
- Bangladesh: serves as the primary research site for active projects which aim to improve the identification and treatment of pediatric infectious diseases
- Ebola Virus Disease research using outbreak data from West Africa focuses on patient characteristics and outcomes, prediction models, use of novel technologies in clinical care and impacts of supportive and adjuvant treatments.
