Indonesia is located along the Pacific Ring of Fire — an area with a high degree of tectonic activity— and has to cope with the constant risk of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods and tsunamis. Indonesia has more active volcanoes than any other country and houses some of the world’s most famous volcanoes, Krakatau (Krakatoa), Tambora, and Merapi. During and after a disaster, the risk of injury to people is high. The Indonesian Wound Care Clinician Association (InWCCA) in conjunction with the local governments aims to help injured people by sending dedicated wound care clinicians to the hospitals near the centre of the disaster. This article provides an overview of the strategy that the InWCCA team applies when attending a disaster.
