IN HAITI, setting up a plug-and-play inflatable emergency hospital. Plus, a photo gallery. Xeni Jardin emails: “Apart from the (to me, totally fascinating) technical details of how you go about assembling a giant blow-up hospital in a disaster zone, and how you balance the appeal of new technology versus the stability of what’s tried and true — the MSF guys in Haiti also spoke with us about continued frustration in getting aid in (airport turning away planes), current conditions in Port-au-Prince, and longer-term rehabilitation concerns (huge numbers of survivors are now missing limbs, how will they work and take care of themselves?). Additionally, they noted that one source of inspiration for this system was the US Army’s MASH units.”
