Tens of thousands of civilians die every year in conflicts and other crises around the globe, and millions more suffer injury, hunger, sickness, and trauma. Public, private, and social entities dedicate significant resources to saving lives and reducing suffering, but the need frequently outpaces resources. Furthermore, these humanitarian crises are often large in scale and complicated to manage, and the response to them is often fragmented, inefficient, and even fruitless, despite best intentions.
Technology can help by increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of humanitarian efforts, even when other resources remain constrained. Hala Systems is founded with this purpose: develop technology that saves lives and reduces trauma. We are leveraging information technology, communications, remote sensing, and innovative architectures to greatly enhance the safety of civilians in crises and the effectiveness and efficiency of responders.
