Several options of transferring patients locally or internationally – including medical evacuation by air ambulance to Europe – exist dependent on the individual case and the medical indications. However, the patient will only be transported if medically necessary and if the SOS International doctors find the patient transportable.
In case of repatriation, the patient will be admitted to the infectious diseases department in the home country. SOS International has general approval from all Nordic countries to accept a patient with Ebola or suspected Ebola. After repatriation, SOS International does not take further part in the patient's treatment.
