The dermatology unit
The dermatology unit is a small part of the medical caravan, but is no less important. It assists the GPs and paediatricians and provides more specialized diagnoses of diseases of the skin, subcutaneous tissue and mucous membranes.
The dermatologist, Ilham, often works in collaboration with the doctors, and assists the surgeons during simple surgeries on the skin.
He has a double role, as do all the volunteers: skin diseases are not uncommon in Morocco, because many people work outdoors under a strong sun. Ilham provides patients with advice to educate them about the risks and encourage them to adopt certain prevention habits.
