On the race, each day, with the "Gendarmerie Royale Marocaine" and the Mauritanian Army, six 4 wheels drive medicalized vehicles, two sweeping trucks, two planes and three helicopters are following and sweeping the tracks.
At the camp, every day the medical HQ is installed. Participants may at any time see the doctors and nurses to be examined or treated.
In total, nine vehicles, six emergency doctors, nine emergency nurses and 1 osteopath who provide the medical service of the AFRICA ECO RACE®.
