Did you know that medicine has a considerable environmental impact?  And that in the UK alone, 100 million tonnes of solid waste are generated annually? Well, if you would like to know more, do click on the link below to read more about the thoughts of the committee members about sustainability and medicine !! Promise, it will definitely be a good read :) 

At MedAID, we do feel that every individual and every action, no matter how small, will be a ripple in the ocean - affecting those who are around us. So, let us all play our part in creating a greener and cleaner environment to live in! Also, here's a shout out to the volunteers and hospitals who are working together with MedAID to both care for human as well as the planetary health.
