About

Reaching acutely ill patients is our goal

Systems Improvement at District Hospitals and Regional Training of Emergency Care (sidHARTe) is a joint initiative between Columbia University and the Ministries of Health in Ghana and Rwanda. sidHARTe’s long-term goal is to improve emergency medical care in resource-limited settings in sub-Saharan Africa, starting at the district level.

sidHARTe partners with the Ministries of Health in Ghana and Rwanda to expand access to emergency care in rural areas through research, technical assistance and curriculum development. sidHARTe has recently expanded to Honduras and Kenya through the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) program.
