Exploring innovative solutions for rapid transport of traffic crash victims to hospitals in India

1:00–5:30 pm
UChicago Center in Delhi


Crash victims are typically transported to hospitals by passing vehicles in most low- and middle-income countries because of the high cost of ambulance-based emergency medical systems (EMS). Researchers from the University of Chicago, Shiv Nadar University and the Indian Institute of Technology - Delhi  have been exploring the concept of using taxis, commercial vehicles, and police as alternative means for rapid and safe transfer of crash victims to hospital. This event brought together key stakeholders to discuss the advantages and pitfalls of such a system.

This workshop was held in collaboration with Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, Shiv Nadar University, and UChicago Center in Delhi.
