It is my pleasure to report to all the members of the Mediterranean Burns Club on the developments that have taken place in the life of the Club during the year 1990-91, since the last Assembly at Rabat. This has been a very successful year, and I shall give only the highlights. Our indefatigable Secretary-General will expand on our activities in greater detail.

  1. International relations
    The MBC is now firmly established and acknowledged as a premier professional association with particular expertise, and its cooperation is being solicited increasingly.

    1. The United Nations. Within the UN International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR) the MBC has been identified as the prime burn care and fire disaster prevention facility. During the year one of the MBC scholarships was shared with the UN, as a contribution to their worldwide efforts.
    2. The Commission of European Communities. The Common Market looks upon the MBC as a strong link in its vast Civil Defence programme.
    3. CEMEC. The burn courses within the training programme of the European Centre for Disaster Medicine have been assured by the MBC through our Secretary-General's Centre.
    4. The MBC is also part of the United Nations Emergency Data Collecting Network, UNIENET.
    5. The World Association for Emergency and Disaster Medicine has strong links with the MBC as its principal thermal injury adviser.
    6. Detente. With the introduction of democracy in the Eastern European countries, the MBC has been asked to advise on peaceful utilization of armed forces now no more needed for fighting: Czechoslovakia is a case in point.
    7. International Civil Defence Organization. MBC is officially nominated as a Regional Training Centre for ICDO.
  2. Inter- organization links
    1. The Société Française d'Etude et de Traitement des Brul6s decided, at its recent Annual Meeting, to join the MBC en bloc as Associate Members. We welcome this close liaison and would be prepared to have similar arrangements with other professional, societies.
  3. International participation
    he MBC has received many invitations from surgical and burn surgery and disaster medicine organizations to participate in their meetings. Upon invitation the MBC has been present and has presented papers at:
    1. AMELISAP: Association des M6dicins Liberaux Sapeurs Pompiers. Montpellier, April 1991.
    2. 7th World Congress on Emergency and Disaster Medicine, May 1991, Montreal. The President of MBC was nominated President-Elect of WAEDM and our Secretary-General was elected to the Executive Council.
    3. Spanish Society of Plastic Surgery. An Association of Burns Surgeons has been founded.
    4. Slovak Society of Burns Surgeons. Kosice, Czechoslovakia, June 1991.
    5. UCLA. University of California at Los Angeles. Symposium on Disasters, July 1991.
    6. University of Bradford. Disaster Management Prospects in the New Europe, Sept. 1991.
    7. 12th Meeting of SFETB: French Society of Study and Treatment of Burns. La Baule (France), Sept. 1991.
    8. 4th Meeting of EBA: European Burn Association. Barcelona (Spain), Sept. 1991,
    9. Ministry of Defence, Civil Protection, Czechoslovakia, Prague, October 1991.
    10. CEMEC: European Centre for Disaster Medicine. international Training Course. R. San Marino, Oct. 1991.
    11. The MBC is Liaison Member of the International Federation of Surgical Colleges. The IFSC Council held its meeting in Palermo in conjunction with our Conf erence.
  4. First International Conference of Burns and Fire Disasters
    The MBC organized in Palermo, September 1990, this first international conference with the novel approach of considering burns as a clinical problem and fire disasters as a society problem, closely interlinked for eff icient prevention and management. This was a great success and the 2nd Conference is planned for October 1992, to coincide with the 10th Anniversary of the MBC.
  5. Fire disasters
    From the preceding and the earlier notes above, it is evident that the MBC is being increasingly involved in and being solicited for expertise in fire disasters. This is a gap that is being filled very ably by the MBC and we are being looked upon as the experts in the field. This has important international implications.
  6. The Annals
    Our quarterly journal, The Annals, is now running the fifth volume and has become a valuable scientif ic publication. Considering the Club's extended interests as mentioned in point 5 above, the full title now is "Annals of the Mediterranean Burns Club - Incorporating Fire Disasters". Reciprocal arrangements have been established with 5 other similar journals
  7. Commissions
    The Commission for the Promotion of Burns Care Facilities in Mediterranean Countries has been very active in its contacts with universities, governments and hospitals, under its energetic Chairman, Prof. John loannovich.
    The Commission of Prevention of Burns and Fire Injuries has been very productive with papers, lectures and video films under its able Chairperson Dr. Maddalena Ferrara.
    The Disaster Commission's work should logically lead us to the Club's Incorporating Fire Disaster. The Commission on Nursing and Paramedical Professions has successfully promoted the interest and training of this important sector in burn management.
  8. Membership
    The membership of the Club is constantly on the increase. We have been turning down requests from prospective members who are not from the Mediterranean countries.
    All the Members of the French Society for the Study of Burns have "en bloc" become Associate Members of the MBC, as noted under point 2.
    Reciprocally, several MBC members have been made Honorary or Associate Members of other sister organizations. The full list of current members will be found in the Annals, Vol. IV, N. 2.
  9. History of the MBC
    Your Secretary-General and President have briefly summarized the history and early years of the Club in the current issue of the Annals: Vol. IV N. 2. The IVIBC Constitution is also reproduced in that issue.
    This Annual Meeting was scheduled for April 1991. As you all know it had to be postponed due to the Gulf War. We are all grateful that the war is over, but it has underlined, among other dangers, the particular problem of mass fires and conflagrations which concern us professionally very much, and which casts on our shoulders a new role and responsibility.
    Our Athenian friends have done a marvellous job in organizing this Annual Meeting against such odds and on behalf of all MBC members I thank Professor loannovich and his Committee for this successful gathering here in the cradle of Western Civilization and a temple of Mediterranean Civilization.

William Gunn


The Club's activity has mainly concentrated on the activities established in the programme approved during the Rabat Assembly in 1990, and in particular on:

  1. Sector of prevention and public education
  2. Sector of disasters and emergencies
  3. Sector of promotion of cultural exchange between countries
  4. Sector of promotion of cooperation
  5. Sector of management and coordination of MBC activities
  1. Sector of'preventi . on and public education
    The MBC has so far produced 6 videotapes which have been dubbed in English, French, Arabic, Spanish, Greek, Turkish and Italian. They are available on request to all those who are willing to undertake to use them in a burn prevention campaign.

The videotapes are entitled:

  • Prevention of Burns in Children
  • Prevention of Burns in Everyday life
  • Prevention of Electrical Burns at Work
  • Prevention of Industrial Disasters
  • Self -protection from fires

Defence from Forest Fires

As further support for the last two of the above videotapes the MBC Directive Board has also shown its interest in the sector of "behaviour education" in the event of a fire.
In 1990 experts and qualified technicians prepared a programme for the production of two videotapes aimed at the education of ordinary people and volunteer groups in "Immediate Care" and "Sanitary First Aid" in the event of Fire Disasters.
The foundations have also been laid for the study of a project aimed at the realization of a multimedia teaching campaign on prevention and the behaviour to adopt in the event of burn accidents and fires.
This is a new educational instrument to be used in schools, industries, etc. It makes use of various methods of information, e.g. still photographs, action sequences, cartoons, written texts, graphics, audio, etc., all managed by a computer which has the function of sole supervisor and is the link between the system and the user.
Further printed educational material has been produced, i.e. notices, albums, posters, etc, and is available to all Members forwarding requests.
An invitation is once again extended to Members to communicate any ideas or suggestions they may have and to make proposals concerning these types of programmes. All proposals will be carefully examined and passed on for their realization to all those who forward their requests.

  1. Sector qf disasters and emergencies
  2. After the success on the scientific level of the "First International Conference on Burns and Fire Disasters" (Palermo, September 1990), the Directive Board contacted the Dutch publishing company Kluwer in order to publish a volume containing the papers presented,
    The publishers have undertaken to promote the volume in the international book world. This is one of the few texts that exists on the specific subject.
    The problem of fire disasters continued to be a subject of keen interest for the Club, in view of the effects that such disasters can have in the sector of Civil Defence, cooperation among peoples, and in the social life of a nation.

  3. Sector of promotion qf'cultural exchanges between countries
  4. In 1991, as in previous years, 10 scholarships were awarded. The physicians who received scholarships were the following:

  • Dr. Golubovich Zoran (Yugoslavia) Dr. Geraci Vito (Italy)
  • Dr. Grimaldi Monica (Italy)
  • Dr. Belmahi Amine (Maroc) Dr. Merlino Giorgio (Italy)
  • Paramedical staff:
  • Ms. Dugone Rebecca (Italy)
  • Mr. Kalada Abdehadi (Marocco)
  • Ms. Karatza Anastasia (Greece)
  • Ms. Ribisi Giovanna (Italy)
  • Ms. Barone Cettina (Italy)

    In 1991 the MBC assisted in the organization of the 5th Meeting, now being held in Athens. The Directive Board has deliberated, as in previous years, to make a financial contribution of 25 million Italian lire and to pay for the printing of promotional material such as folders, posters, etc. and for their sending.
    As a result of the postponement of the Meeting due to the Gulf war, the contribution was higher than expected because it was necessary to produce and send two series of folders, etc.
    In 1991 the MBC was pleased to accept official invitations to participate in numerous Meeting and Congresses in Mediterranean countries and elsewhere. On 19th and 20th April, in Montpellier, the MBC was represented by the Secretary General at the "Assises Européennes de médicine d'urgence et de terrain -organized by AMELISAP (Association des Meclicin~ Lib6raux Sapeurs-Pompiers).
    From 13th to 16th May, in Montreal, the MBC was present in the persons of the President and the Secretary-General at the proceedings of the WAEDM (World Association for Emergency and Disaster Medicine). The MBC's participation aroused keen interest and in the course of the General Assembly the President of the MBC and the Secretary-General were respectively elected President of the WAIEDM and Member of the Directive Board for the three-year period 1992~1994.
    From 13th to 15th June the Secretary-General of the MBC, on official invitation, participated in the Twelfth Congress of the French Burns Society held at La Baule. The General Assembly of the Society unanimously requested the enrolment of the MBC as an Associate Member.
    In July 1991 the University of California in Los Angeles organized a -Symposium on Disasters---. The President, by official invitation, represented the MBC.
    From 13th to 16th September, at the Congress of the European Burns Association in Barcelona, the MBC presented a desk with a display of all its activities which was received with great interest by all present.
    From 1st to 4th October, on the official invitation of the Prague Civil Defence Organization, the MBC was present at "Pragasec 91---. The President and Secretary-General were thus able to contact specialists and authorities from Czechoslovakia and other East European countries and to lay the foundations for future scientific and cultural collaboration.
    From 21st to 22nd October, at St. Vincent, the MBC, on official invitation, was represented by the Secretary-General at the scientific proceedings of the International Congress on Forest Fires.
    From 23rd to. 24th October the MBC contributed to the realization of the ref resher course on "Management of mass burns and fire disasters" held in San Marino in the context of the annual programme organized by CEMEC (European Centre for Catastrophe Medicine).
    The MBC has officially been invited to take part in an International meeting on 1ntensive Treatment' of Severe Burns" organized by the A.V. Vishnevski Institute of Surgery, to be held in Moscow in February 1992.
    The MBC will take part as a collaborating institution in the scientific proceedings of the "World Conference on Health Emergencies in Technological Disasters", organized by the Italian Ministry of Civil Defence, to be held in Rome in May 1992.

    Future MBC meetings

    The year 1992 marks the tenth anniversary of the constitution of the MBC and of the institution of the G. Whitaker International Burns Prize.
    The MBC, the 0. Whitaker Foundation and the Department of Plastic Surgery and Burns Therapy, Palermo, to honour this occasion, intend to organize in Palermo from 30th September to 3rd October:
    The Sixth Meeting of the MBC and The Second International Conference on Burns and Fire Disasters - Perspectives 2000
    The leading specialists in the field of burns and fire disasters will be invited to discuss future perspectives in the treatment of burns both as an individual pathology and as a social problem in the event of disasters.
    The announced Refresher Course that the MBC was to have held in Cairo in March 1991 on the invitation of our Egyptian colleagues, during the annual meeting of the Egyptian Plastic Surgery Society, was postponed because of the international problems due to the Gulf War. The Course will be held in 1992.


    The quarterly publication of "Annals of the Mediterranean Burns Club" continues regularly. The circulation of 3000 copies has permitted wide diffusion in countries all over the world.
    We have received many expressions of approval and numerous requests for the publication of articles, also from specialists working outside the Mediterranean area.
    As announced during the Rabat Assembly, preparations are in course - with the purchase of supplementary equipment - to use the printing workshop of Palermo Civic Hospital for the publication of "Annals" directly by the MBC.

  1. Sector oj'promotion and cooperation
  2. It was announced in last year's report that the University of Aleppo had requested the MBC to perform a study regarding the planning of Burns Centres in the Republic of Syria. The MBC delivered its report within 2 months. in July 1991 the University of Aleppo authorities communicated that they had accepted the proposed plan.
    The activity continued of the Burns Centres in Madrid, Toulouse, Athens, Turin and Palermo aimed at the realization of the COMETT 11 Project on behalf of the EEC. This concerns the creation of a programme for a hypermedia system based on an interactive videodisk, as a data bank in the sector of burns, and of a hypertext for information management. This programme is intended for the training of medical and paramedical staff specialized in the field of burns and their prevention.
    An application has been presented to the EEC to participate in a second project named "Tempus"; this will involve the participation of the MBC and an Eastern European country, namely Rumania.

  3. Sector of management and coordination of MBC activities
    Activities have continued in order to increase and coordinate better the activities of the MBC, as laid down in the programme presented to and approved by the General Assembly in Rabat,
    A) In 1991 more equipment was purchased necessary to integrate the equipment already in the possession of the Club and that owned by the Hospital, in order to set up a printing centre that will enable the Club to produce all the printed material necessary for the institutional activities and for the management of MBC and of "Annals".
    B) The hardware and software system has been completed for the preparation of the MBC bibliographical research Centre. As soon as the data base files have been filled, it will be possible to link up with Palermo in order to have access to the data, which will be provided on direct request.

In collaboration with the Department of Plastic Surgery and Burns Therapy, Palermo, preparations are well advanced for the preparation of all software necessary for the management of in-patients and out-patients in a Plastic Surgery and Burns Department.
This laborious and expensive task is expected to be completed in the first 6 months of 1992. The MBC intends to make these programmes (in English and French, initially) available to all Directors of Centres who wish to receive them, plus the hardware at cost price. This use of modern technology will create a network among the various centres, at minimum expense.
Centres already in possession of Modem type equipment and communication systems can already contact MBC headquarters using the number 091.6512509.
The creation of this system as planned will facilitate closer links of collaboration among the Centres connected, on both the clinical and the scientific/didactic level, It will thus be possible to create a common data bank for the whole Mediterranean area which every Member can draw on for activities of research, study and collaboration.
I hope that the programme 1 have illustrated relative to the past and future activities of the MBC will meet the approval of the Assembly.
I thank you all very cordially for your kind attention in examining it.
