Meet the Team

Led by founder/managing director Dr Ian Norton, Respond Global’s team of world-leading experts all have first-hand experience in the coordination of and preparation for, as well as the operationalization of, health responses to disasters and outbreaks.

Our national and international clinical and logistics staff are field-tested and between them have worked with over 60 countries, regional bodies and the UN on improving international response mechanisms.

Members of our team, and our strategic partner EarthTech, are based in both Australia and around the globe, so we are well-placed to provide prompt assistance and ongoing support, either in person or virtually, when needed.
