"There are two billions of people in our waiting room, and the whole world is our emergency room" -by Doctors Without Borders-

Medical, humanitarian organizations are responsible for saving millions of lives each year. However, in many counties, the lack of infrastructure and isolated locations make medical relief close to impossible. It is essential that field hospitals be immediately set-up and ready for action in response to a natural disaster or war. However, until now, the wet-up of field hospitals has been slow and complicated; which too often leads to the death of individual whose lives could have been saved had the necessary medical treatment been readily available.
