First portable disaster hospital build in India


India has constructed the first airliftable disaster hospital in the world, which is packed into 72 cubes. The task force was established by the Ministry of Defence in response to PM Modi’s Project BHISHM (Bharat Health Initiative for Sahyog Hita and Maitri), which was unveiled in February 2022.
Prime Minister Modi introduced the “Aarogya Maitri” programme during the Global South Summit in January of this year, under which India will provide basic medical supplies to any poor nations afflicted by a natural disaster or humanitarian crisis.

The idea was formally introduced at the August G20 Health Ministers meeting and MedTech Expo in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Officials from Myanmar were first shown the project in July.
There are 72 cubes in the Aarogya Maitri Cube. The critical tools and supplies included in these cubes include an operating room, a small ICU, ventilators, blood testing tools, an X-ray machine, a cooking station, food, water, shelter, a power generator, and more.The cubes can withstand a number of serious wounds, such as 40 bullet wounds, 25 severe burns, about 10 head injuries, lengthy limb fractures, spine injuries, chest injuries, and spinal fractures.Each cube was created using the Rubik’s Cube concept and is under 20 kg in weight, making it simple to carry by hand up to a kilometre.
