Background

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the NTRI and GVK-EMRI was signed on 5 September 2014 in the presence of the Hon. Tony Abbott, MP, Prime Minister of Australia. Under the terms of this MoU, the NTRI will work with GVK-EMRI on shared goals to strengthen trauma care practices in India and collaborate in areas of trauma care. The first planned activity of this MoU was a proposal to the Government of Uttar Pradesh to pilot model trauma systems and networks linking pre-hospital and hospital based trauma care providers.
