Who needs this kit?
This kit is designed for a trained First Aider responsible for treating common injuries and illnesses that occur in remote and/or resource poor environments. Particularly useful where limited health facilities exist.
What does this kit treat?
Injuries that require care during a potential delay in accessing second-line care at a health clinic or hospital (e.g. broken bones); treatment of common infectious diseases and symptom relief of pain or dehydration.
Why is it important?
When access to reliable health care is more than 12 hours away, there may be a need to provide treatment and care that will prevent deterioration. Such care may be life-saving in same cases.
