Medical care for
those who need
it most

When there is war, conflict, or disaster, and the most vulnerable populations are caught in the crossfire, GRM is there to help. We are an agile crisis response team delivering emergency care on the front lines. In this capacity, we conduct situation analysis and provide clinical capacity building so our efforts can pave the way for sustained humanitarian operations by the global community.

Our approach is multi-faceted, leveraging principles and best practices from military, academic, and pre-hospital medicine to provide effective, evidence-based care for high-risk, low-resource environments around the world.

Rapid Response Team

The first touch point in any emergency

Made up of veterans and medical experts, these specialized teams are small and nimble, able to deploy quickly to areas of greatest need in an emergency, simultaneously assessing, providing care and shoring up local resources. The teams serve as liaisons to the larger humanitarian community, pushing data back to entities like the WHO Emergency Medical Team coordinators and local government to inform response efforts.

Medical Capacity Building

Creating sustainable health systems around the globe

See one, do one, teach one. On every mission, we incorporate evidence-based medical education for local clinicians, often leading to long-term capacity building projects with our academic medical partners to build communities from within. We follow a “train the trainer” model to provide medical education, infrastructure support, and training on new technologies. We use a combination of asynchronous virtual learning and in-person training for all our clinicians.

Emergency Medical Aid

Long-term medical aid for vulnerable populations

After the emergency response, GRM can continue to support local efforts by sending our clinicians to provide a safe environment where everyone gets the care they need, no matter how complicated the case. Our clinical teams work with local healthcare resources and consult with doctors from around the world to provide life-saving medical care in areas that are impacted by war and conflict and in need of humanitarian support.

Partnering with universities and hospitals across the United States, GRM sustains a high level of care in vulnerable areas until a reliable system can be created locally.

Whether it’s pre-hospital trauma care, COVID relief in asylum camps, primary care, vaccination efforts, or emergency medical care, we provide help for the people who have fallen through the cracks of humanitarian aid.

We are in Gaza and Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed and was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was the bedrock of GRM, serving as Board President for 4 years. In January, Pete stepped away from GRM to work with Global Outreach Doctors on their Ukraine mission and was killed while rendering aid.

This is a stark reminder of the perils rescue and aid workers face in conflict zones as they serve citizens caught in the crossfire. Pete was just 33 years old, but lived a life in service of others, first as a decorated US Marine and then in humanitarian aid. GRM will strive to honor his legacy and the selfless service he practiced.

We fully support Pete’s family, friends, and colleagues during this devastating time.
