Connecting People

CriticaLink is building a network of volunteer emergency First Responders who are dispatched through SMS and mobile alert to save lives in Bangladesh.

What happens without an emergency medical service

For every 10 people who die in the United States from road accident injuries, 800 people die in Bangladesh.

In countries like Bangladesh it is estimated that more than 85% of accident victims die before they ever reach the hospital, many of whom could have been saved if they had faster access to basic medical care at the scene of the accident.
