Traduction en anglais : Basic medical care of drug addicts and young homeless persons : an authentic report.
During the last few years there has been an increasing number of reports from the staff in low level acceptance institutions as well as from streetworkers, about poor physical condition among drug addicts and young drifters.
In May 1993 this caused the Public Health department of Cologne to set up a mobile medical service.
This service offers consultation hours in so called « contact cafes » as well as in an out-of-service ambulance for drug addicts of the open drug scene and young drivers around the central station.
Past experience has shown that the affections are by no means trivial ones.
Phlegmoneous inflammations, abscesses, parasitosis and pyodermias of any kind as well as lesions of peripheral nerves and different kinds of acute or chronic virus infections are among the diseases.
