We are an NGO working across the world to provide tailor-made healthcare solutions, specialising in Low Resource Areas. For twenty years we been making a critical difference in LMIC regions where it matters most – on the clinical front line.
For LMICs, sourcing and maintaining suitable healthcare equipment is a problem for remote rural clinics and larger urban hospitals alike – as well as for the charities, NGOs, churches and medical equipment distributors that work with and for them. We aim to tackle this issue head on, by providing equipment and training to those who need it, improving healthcare in some of the most deprived areas.
Twenty years ago, in a hospital in a remote part of Uganda, Tim Beacon, a former Operating Department Practitioner and medical equipment specialist from the UK, experienced first-hand the agonising challenges of providing adequate healthcare to some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
Non-existent or obsolete equipment; lack of maintenance and training; donated Western devices too resource-hungry for infrastructure-poor environments – these were the pitfalls that spurred CEO Tim to found Medical Aid International from his garage in 2002.
We've worked on a global scale to help support healthcare efforts in LMICs and low resource environments. We've developed solutions for a rural hospital in the DRC, a major Tanzanian teaching centre, or a Nepalese disaster zone.
The success of Medical Aid International revolves around our hard working team, that always put patients first. Everybody works hard to ensure our equipments arrives safely at its destination and can provide a huge difference in healthcare environments.
