We were pleased to see the focus on emergency care in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in the most recent Bulletin of the World Health Organization. Quoted in the article is Dr. Alegnta Gebreysesus, Ethiopia’s director for emergency and critical care services and graduate of the 3rd cohort of the Addis Ababa University EM residency program.

Dr. Alegnta also spoke this week on the opening panel at ACEP2020: “Lessons Learned: Global Response to COVID-19”.

Congratulations Dr. Alegnta! TAAAC-EM is so proud of your work and advocacy to advance emergency medicine in Ethiopia and around the world.
