Summary

Banda Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia (Feb. 12, 2005) Public health workers from the Military Sealift Command (MSC) hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) and representatives from the International Organization for Immigration (IOM), meet with a midwife from one of the camps for internally displaced persons (IDP) in Banda Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia, to discuss infection control measures she uses for camp healthcare. The study is being done to determine what measures need to be taken to prevent disease from spreading within the large populations of people inside these camps. Mercy is serving as an enabling platform to assist humanitarian operations ashore in ways that host nations and international relief organization find useful. Mercy is currently off the waters of Indonesia in support of Operation Unified Assistance, the humanitarian relief effort to aid the victims of the tsunami that struck Southeast Asia.
