TACKLING WORLDWIDE HEALTH DISPARITIES

“When I made enquires, it turned out that there was no first aid anywhere” 

 

ABOUT  US

Student MedAID is a UK wide coalition of student-led branches, operating autonomously, who share a common goal. We aim to coordinate the redistribution of excess medical supplies to individuals, communities or places in need by organising projects that link prospective donating organisations with receiving organisations. We are also committed to using our platform to educate and raise awareness of sustainability in healthcare.

REAL STORIES

"I took a whole suitcase of equipment out to The Gambia having asked the hospital in advance what they would appreciate. They received the equipment very gratefully. Whilst I was there, we used cannulas from Edinburgh to manage sick patients. Just as I arrived it seemed they had run out of large gloves so I was able to replace their stock."
