Respond Global Emergency Response Team

A truly global team

Respond Global’s international team of multi-lingual emergency response experts provide solutions that are a direct result of their field-based experiences, adapted to the specific context of a country, industry, or organisation.

Our clinical and logistics staff have worked with over 60 countries and regional bodies, as well as the WHO and UN in improving international response mechanisms.

With connections to health leadership and operational response teams in Australia, New Zealand, South-West Pacific, Asia, and the WHO, we are in the unique position of being able to provide a meaningful localised translation of global, national and state health policies into practical and implementable responses.
