- •Reasonably well-developed urban emergency medical services systems mixed with very poorly resourced and under-developed rural services.
- •Very high patient workloads, with severely ill medical patients and a large proportion of major trauma and multiple-casualty situations (public safety is given a low priority, and public transport is poorly regulated).
- •Long emergency response times and patient transport distances.
- •Somewhat under resourced and under developed emergency departments, with large numbers of critically ill acute patients, as well as many non-emergency/chronic patients who have no other access to appropriate health care.
