The Mobile Aids Network (MAN) is the result of a symbiotic link between a body and portable hardware. It is the conceptual infrastructure developed out of this link. The design of a Mobile AIDS health clinic for Africa is a problem of survival and minimum existence. It demands a concept for light habitation as well as a system of mobile treatment and education. Out of this we have developed the BACKPACK MAN. She carries the knowledge of the world's medical institutions in her back-pack and will also be free from the static physical restraints of these environments. The MAN understands the there are three primary programs: HIV/AIDS treatment, HIV/AIDS education and housing for HIV/AIDS workers. The MAN creates multiple degrees of mobility. The network combines light structure treatment clusters with nomadic BACKPACK doctors.
