General outline

    The central task is to keep upright medical infrastructure of a certain quality (to be defined) for a certain group of people in an infrastructural "nowhere's land".
Priorisation will be based on a probability ranking. Precedence will be taken on what is useful for many, while something, which is likeley to be needed only in rare cases (e.g. snake-bite serum), will be set back.

With respect to expected frequency, there must be covered

Feverish infection
Injuries after smaller accidents



Not every risk can be covered. Therefore, each participant must be aware that it is a certain risk he takes, and that no one else can be made liable for it. For example amputation after complicated break), and that no one can be made liable. In certain situations, one will be forced to accept the local level of medical care.

Certain risks are subject to insurance contracts. There must be some contractual regulation which doctor and patient have agreed upon.

  Concept for medical services

2 teams in 2 vehicles, one for internal medicine, one for surgical usage.
The first team (surgical vehicle) accompanies the caravan (e.g. accident treatment, shock treatment etc.).
The second team cares about patients in long-term-treatment who must be driven (e.g. patients with feverish infections or heavy diarhoea, preventing them from active participance in the Qafila-t-as-Salam)
Exchange of staff should be done every 3 to 4 weeks.
Staff must be available to take care of patients in local hospitals or to insure their return flight (e.g. take care of patients, bring them to the airport, await their flight with them, etc.)
One consulting hour a day at the night camp.
Since the artists are walking, the presence of physiotherapists as well as blister treatment must be attached great importance to.
