When I was at Doha Airport, in one of the waiting rooms, I ran across a couple who had a small baby with them. The parents were not well-off and were going to see some very ill/about-to-be-dead relative, don't remember the exact circumstance but on those lines. I found myself helpless as I didn't know if there is any medical help they could have availed in the airport. On railways, I know that doctors (General Physician and all surgery, paediatric Doctors) are given subsidized tickets with the idea that if anybody has a medical emergency the doctor will give free help till arrives in form of more medical professionals with their tools.
Is there a common policy which could help parents in situations like these?
Update - Do they charge money for diagnosing small ailments like fever, cough etc. ? Medicines for sure would cost money.
