MEDEVAC IN NUMBERS
Permanent medical humanitarian programme of the Czech Ministry of the Interior
Since 1993, the programme focuses on providing access to medical care for vulnerable groups of persons. The care provided is free of charge and exclusively for civilians – persons, who are in dire of such medical care or whose condition prevents them from leading a dignified life. MEDEVAC is implemented through deployment of Czech medical teams abroad, expert trainings for foreign medical staff, evacuating of patients for medical treatment to the Czech Republic and supporting medical projects aimed at rebuilding health infrastructure.
