The European Centre for Disaster Medicine, an organization based in the tiny country of San Marino, has unveiled an innovative new medical app that is designed specifically to assist migrants to Europe in accessing healthcare and emergency medical care facilities.

The app, available as a free download on the Google Play store, offers a range of information and communication tools to help migrants deal with medical emergencies. For example, it uses easy-to-read comic strips to offer instructions on how to carry out CPR, with different languages available to help people from different backgrounds.

The international migrant crisis has thrown up a wide variety of challenges in the spheres of healthcare and communication, but this European-made medical app aims to use smartphone technologies to bridge the gap.
