About the kit

Packed in a robust red bag with an inner drugs bag, all of the items are very high quality and readily accessible. This enables the user to manage a wide range of circumstances and health care needs, ensuring that they can carry out their tasks or simply enjoy their expedition in the best possible health and manner.

This kit has been designed by Tim Beacon, the Managing Director of Medical Aid International who has a Post-Graduate Diploma in Travel Medicine. He is the author of “The Gap Year Handbook, an Essential Guide to Adventure Travel”, has taught on military medical courses and regularly travels to remote and challenging environments.

The kits have been issued to UK teams going to Sierra Leone in the current Ebola crisis as well as other deployments.
