Project History

The first training of the project took part Oct 9 to 13 in Kyiv on the premises of the Main Military Clinical Hospital in conditions imitating real combat actions. More 200 doctors who are either preparing to be deployed to the MoD units or already serving in the ATO zone took part in the training.

Since the beginning of the project more than 900 military medics went through the Medsanbat preparation system in Kyiv, Mariupol, Sloviansk, Dnipropetrovsk, Kuibysheve, Khmelnytskyi, Zhytomyr and Lviv. Trainings were organized according to the NATO standards under supervision of American instructors each of whom has considerable experience of providing medical care in special forces units doing active combat service. In November the new stage of the course began, when Ukrainian instructors, who took the full training course, will be teaching their counterparts the modern principles of medical care before the casualty gets into a MFH or a static medical facility.

Trainings take place in hospitals in static auditoriums as well as in mobile field hospitals, on training grounds where the units fighting in the ATO are deployed.

Combat medics who were deployed or returning to the ATO after completion of the course following the decision of instructors were issued 50 medic begs, fully equipped with drugs and medical tools according to the NATO standards to provide first aid in combat situations. Another 50 bags are being packed and shipped to Ukraine now.

November 2014, a project was started on Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace that will help to raise charitable donations for 100 military medic bags equipped to NATO standards.

Combat Medic Bag Level II performs the same functions as the medical bag that the Medsanbat students going into the combat zone were receiving. But its equipment, light weight and mobility will enable combat medics to provide first aid in combat conditions in more operative fashion. It is of critical importance because of the difficulties and major risk that is associated with evacuation of the injured from the battlefield sometimes hospital medical care is delayed to 12 hours instead of the required 60 minutes. In such conditions providing qualified and timely care in the hot zone is the key factor that influences survivability in combat conditions.
