• In Africa, medical care is sometimes non-existent.

Response-Med’s management team has over 50 years’ experience in providing services to multi-nationals operating remotely in East and Sub-Saharan Africa. Today we operate across the extractives, renewable energy, tourism and infrastructure development industries. Together with our INGO and development partners, we design, set up, implement, and manage health care facilities, providing underserved communities with access to quality healthcare.

QUALITY CARE IS STANDARD

Our promise of access to the top regional medical specialists, bio-medical technicians, medical support personnel and world-class clinical treatment comes standard. We offer our services at competitive rates, while never compromising on quality.

An African-born team, we believe clients choose to partner with us because of our in-depth local insight, and our ability to apply region-specific treatment protocols, policies and procedures.

Testimonials

“Diana and her team supported our seismic operations on two separate operations between 2010 and 2014, in different exploration licenses in the Coastal region of Kenya. All field personnel were clinically strong working within the onsite clinics, ambulances and the more remote line camps. The medics were pro-active with regards to Health and Safety training on topics of malaria awareness, first aid, health and safety within the camp and the kitchen facilities as well as lifestyle illnesses and personal hygiene.”
Allan Sayers
Director Polaris Exploration (UK) Ltd

“Response-Med has recently provided an excellent First Aid Training to our members of our Elephant and Bess Project research team based in Sagalla, near Voi in Kenya. We found their training to be very professionally presented. 60% of the course was practical focusing on a number of areas that we had identified as important for our location. I was impressed with Response-Med from the first interaction with their Nairobi Staff team right through to the follow up communication after that course was successfully completed.”
Dr Lucy King
Head of Human-Elephant Co-Existance Program Elephant and Bees Project, Save The Elephants, Nairobi, Kenya

“Response-Med has provided BGP with remote medical support in various locations across East Africa.  The nature of this service has been the provision of advanced life support and primary health care medical personnel.  In addition to this, Response-Med procured medical equipment and consumables as well as managed our clinics, ambulances and medical evacuations.

The services that they provide have always been professional and clinically sound with a strong emphasis on Health and Safety, risk mitigation and customer service.

We continue to work with Response-Med and have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Guo Jianwei
HSSE Manager, BGP East Africa

“Response-Med has been providing us with Hostile Environment First Aid Training for HEAT courses that we offer to a cross section of organisations across the East African region. We have enjoyed working with Response-Med and found their training and the delivery there of to be to be both professional and clinically  sound. The feedback from our Clients continues to be positive.

In addition to this, Response-Med have provided us with a number of specific trauma first aid kits and grab bags for our personnel to use whilst in field. The quality of these kits is in keeping with international standards and they delivered these kits to our offices within required timelines.  We have no hesitation in recommending Response-Med for both hostile environment first aid training and trauma kit and equipment provision.”
