WHY THE 'BACKPACKER MEDICS'?
Everyone involved with Backpacker Medics has travelled extensively, often returning from far-flung destinations with a burning desire to use their skills to help the communities they encounter.
One common thread of their ‘traveller’s tales’ is that the people who need the most medical assistance are, often, in the most remote locations. These are places well off the usual tourist trails and, therefore, sometimes largely forgotten. More often than not, the only access to these areas is on foot and the only way to bring in supplies is to carry them. Hence: Backpacker Medics.
All the initial equipment and supplies we use fit into custom-designed backpacks allowing our medics excellent mobility and adaptability.
