Disasters can strike at any time in any corner of the globe for many reasons. Recent healthcare crises like the onset and global spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) have highlighted how easily the medical system’s capacity can be overrun.
GML is collaborating with government agencies, health authorities and other organizations around the world in the fight against COVID-19.
The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the World Health Organization agree that the frequency and severity of humanitarian emergencies generated as the result of impacts of climate change (such as more severe storms, droughts, wild fires, disease outbreaks, population displacement) will continue to increase unless global carbon emissions are reduced and temperature rise is stabilized.
Recognizing the critical need in settings requiring relief and emergency humanitarian assistance, GML colleagues around the world work collaboratively with governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), Civil Service Organizations (CSOs), and health care providers (HCPs), to enable prevention and treatment of disease by making analysis and tests available to as many people as possible.
