CANTALEJO PEREZ, F. et al. High risk infections patients Air Medevec: Our experience after 3 medical cases. Sanid. Mil. [online]. 2017, vol.73, n.1, pp.46-56. ISSN 1887-8571.

Spanish troops deployed on international operations all over African tropical areas can be exposed to high-risk situations due to severe infectious diseases that can affect the population under their responsibility as well as to the possible use of biological weapons in current international conflicts. In this situation the Spanish Unified Defense Medical Command and, in this particular case, the Spanish Unit Medical Evacuation (UMAER) updated their NBC defense procedures since the beginning of these missions of Spanish armed forces in Africa. Initially the response capability to this biological threat was reinforced in these territories, and afterwards training was carried out for the possibility of MEDEVAC missions of patients with infectious diseases in order to receive definitive treatment on national territory. This article is a report of what happened during these missions. It is recognition of all people involved and their efforts.
