Experience has shown that there is a clear demand for knowledge transfer from experienced experts.
MEDIC - Medical Equipment Distribution Information Centre
In the warehouses of Medic everything that may be useful to our clients ( with the exception of medicines )
may be found: hospital inventory, medical instruments, OR equipment, bandages and suture material,
syringes and needles, uniforms, bed- and OR linen, blankets, wheelchairs, equipment for revalidation etc.
Medic collects and repairs materials useful to health projects sponsored by relief organizations or private persons.
The MIC collects all kind of information that is useful for our clients : funds which are prepared to support
specific projects financially, names and addresses of suppliers of products and equipment which Medic cannot
supply, names and addresses of suitable shipping companies, transportation companies, forwarding agents
and cheap airfreight possibilities
As far as possible Medic will comply with requests for assistance, by sending medical experts
who are prepared to exchange their knowledge and experience for a couple of weeks in order
to improve the local situation.
The Medic Consultant always works under the responsibility of the counterpart. Medic will pay for the travelling
expenses; the local party will take care of board and lodging and local transportation.
It is emphasized that the accent is on the exchange of knowledge.
To achieve this, contacts are maintained with Dutch and native workers in many places in Africa,
Eastern Europe, Asia, and Central- and South America.
Examples of our own products are: operating table, operating lamp, delivery bed.
Careful consideration is given to the appropriate usage of the goods
Approximately 200 projects are performed annually.
Based on requests from the field Medic experts design and manufacture basic medical products especially for
use in rural areas, keeping in mind that power-failures occur, spare parts are often hard to get and service may
be a problem.foundation
