In many countries around the world there are programs where medical staff and social workers actively seek out and medically assist homeless people. Our project would like to establish this model in Austria. Volunteer medical personnel and social workers go regularly visit the homeless where they reside, to assist seriously ill patients with their medical concerns. This program is in cooperation with numerous street worker NGO's.
