Street Medic Wikia (beta), the online resource for street medics that anyone can edit

Street medics serve a variety of roles, both in and out of protests.

Street medics hold themselves to a very high ethical standard. They emphasize over and over again the importance of Do no harm interventions, consent, always working as 1/2 of a buddy pair, and knowing their own limits.

Street medics are partisan medicine, providing care as a means of support in a social struggle. Their deep respect for everyone they treat is not just how they maintain their own safety; it is their purpose for doing this work.
