Medic collects and repairs medical equipment and goods. Medic makes this equipment and goods available to health-care projects in developing countries on an “on request” basis at marginal cost
Approximately 150 projects are performed annually in over 40 countries. Based on requests from the field and keeping in mind that power-failures occur, spare parts are often hard to get and service may be a problem, Medic experts design and manufacture in house basic medical products especially for use in rural areas.
Examples of our own products are: mechanical operating table, Battery supported operating lamp, delivery bed and an external orthopaedic fixing device. Careful consideration is given to the appropriate usage of the goods.
Medic maintains good relations and cooperation with Dutch and non-Dutch workers in the field in Africa, Eastern-Europe, Asia and the South- and Middle America's. In cooperation with allied organisations, Medic makes knowledge available by detaching medical and technical specialists as consultants on a case by case basis.
Medic Foundation is an organisation helping to provide medical goods and services to people in need in economically underdeveloped areas, irrespective of race, religion or creed
Past the establishment of the foundation by the surgeon A.J. Froeling in 1968, Medic has grown to an organization with about 90 volunteers with a broad expertise in many areas of health care and technology.
