The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) is one of the largest UN peacekeeping missions globally, with 12,000 military personnel and over 3,000 police and civilian staff stationed across Mali.
Due to poor road infrastructure, and security risks, the movement of casualties to receive definitive care and/or surgical intervention is limited to air travel, which in itself can mean a journey of many hours. A situation which significantly affects patient outcomes.
To mitigate this time challenge, the UN developed a system of AMET teams who would be ‘forward-located’ on missions, and able to provide advanced resuscitation and aeromedical capability in a timely manner, and according to best practice standards of care.
Iqarus has amassed a wealth of operational and clinical experience to offer a professional solution for such complex and challenging projects. The ability to provide this service, professionally, is key to enabling and supporting the UN’s peacekeeping mission in Mali.
