When international conflicts occur, members, non-members and other organizations frequently contact ACEP to determine what role or action ACEP is taking to provide relief or coordinate assistance.
ACEP is a non-profit, professional medical association that is the leading advocate for emergency physicians, their patients and the public.
ACEP is not a disaster relief organization and does not coordinate physician relief efforts.
However, we do offer guidance for health care professionals interested in assisting disaster medical response for conflicted areas and the related emergency care.
PLEASE NOTE: This page includes just a few organizations working to provide critical aid to the Ukrainian people. You can find even more nonprofits and international organizations — all of which have a three- or four-star ratings — supporting those affected by the conflict on the Charity Navigator website.

To help facilitate a place for members and other health care professionals to post opportunities to serve and support, ACEP has created an International Relief forum where you can connect and convene with each other.
