Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) in New South Wales (NSW), Australia employs two of the co-directors of DevelopingEM- Lee Fineberg and Mark Newcombe. Both are senior staff specialists in Emergency Medicine and have worked in the region since 1998.
ISLHD services nearly 400,000 residents in an area stretching 250 Km along the coast of NSW south from the outskirts of Sydney. Eight health facilities provide excellent health care for a diverse urban and rural population.
The most recent accreditation of emergency medicine services in the ISLHD region recognised the work of DevelopingEM since 2011 in providing a forum for critical care education and collaboration with colleagues from around the globe.
This recognition has led to formalised support by ISLHD for DevelopingEM.
With this support we hope to collaborate with ISLHD and the University of Wollongong to expand the reach of DevelopingEM.
The Pacific Community (SPC) is the principal scientific and technical organisation in the Pacific region, proudly supporting development since 1947. They are an international development organisation owned and governed by our 26 country and territory members. Much of their focus is on major cross-cutting issues, such as climate change, disaster risk management, food security, gender equality, human rights, non-communicable diseases and youth employment. Using a multi-sector approach in responding to our members’ development priorities, we draw upon skills and capabilities from around the region and internationally, and support the empowerment of Pacific communities and sharing of expertise and skills between countries and territories. Without their assistance prior to and during DevelopingEM 2018 the breadth of regional delegate support would not have been possible.

They invest in the future of emergency medicine by supporting organizations, like DevelopingEM, and individuals who are committed to growing the specialty.
