Emergency: Health Care with an Italian DesignThis is the story of a "cathedral in the desert" the Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery in khartoum, Sudan, where everything from the building to the management structure has been designed to represent the fundamental values of caring and preserving life, regardless of gender, race and belief.

Raul Pantaleo, designer/architect of Emergency hospitals in Africa, Lucia Rocca, emergency mid-wife in Afghanistan, and Gianluca Cantalupi, EmergencyUK trustee in London, illustrate their experience in Khartoum as well as the mission of Emergency.
