Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC)

The Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) program is a US federal government health initiative, aiming to reduce child and youth disability and death due to severe illness or injury. This is being accomplished with ongoing efforts to increase awareness among health professionals, providers, planners and the general public of the unique physiological and psychological needs of children receiving emergency medical care. EMSC funds and supports improvements in pediatric emergency care in each state and territory through competitive grants and cooperative agreements.
