The key to creating a sustainable and long-term solution to the overwhelmed medical institutions in war-torn regions is to teach local medical personnel in the latest techniques and practices.  Most aid organizations are not able to provide the infrastructure necessary to create a long-term solution.  GSMSG is the only organization capable of routinely bringing the highest qualified medical personnel from the US directly to front-line areas in an effort to confront humanitarian disasters.
