To build a Rapid Response Team for disaster management on International Guidelines and Emergency Preparedness 
is a mega project of Disaster Relief by Irish and Pakistanis D.R.I.P. Ireland since Earthquake of 2005.
Capacity building of health sector by continuous medical education is one of the most neglected areas in Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir .D.R.I.P has built a faculty in recent years with the help of their Irish partners, which train health and non health professionals in learning skills of saving lives in the time of emergencies.
These trainees then respond professionally in times of emergencies and were active in providing emergency care and relief in the recent floods in Pakistan.

Pre-Hospital and Hospital Emergency care is a new field in Pakistan and in most of the developing countries. Mortality and morbidity have been reduced in the developed world in the last few decades by developing this speciality.
Trainings provided are on International guidelines with the help of Irish Faculties of National 

Ambulance Services College (NASC) Dublin and Pre-hospital Emergency Care Council 
(PHECC) Ireland.
Since 2006 D.R.I.P. have  trained 4000 health and non health professionals ,along with 110
Instructors’ .An Institute was launched by name of Institute of Learning Emergency Medicine 
(I.L.E.M)  in Pakistan which is affiliated with NASC, PHECC and Medical Universities in Pakistan.
It’s a most cost effective model of training and has saved millions of Euros in foreign exchange for  a country like Pakistan in addition to saving many precious lives .Most of the participants in Pakistan are unable to learn latest skills in this field as they do not have adequate financial resources to undergo the requisite trainings outside Pakistan
