Norway Amps Up Emergency Preparedness Using WHO’s Team-Based Mobile Hospital Model

Country Correspondent: Marianne Storm

Norway is strengthening its emergency preparedness using emergency medical teams (EMTs). EMTs will be able to set up mobile pop-up hospitals in any location within 48 hours. Health Minister Bent Høie received the accreditation certificate from the WHO for the first of three Norwegian teams. The Norwegian EMT is equipped to operate in arctic conditions, can be mobilized anywhere in the world, and will assist in a global public health crisis on request from the United Nations and the European Union.
