Welcome to Medics Beyond Borders
Medics Beyond Borders has grown from an award-winning platform that delivers primary and emergency health care solutions in remote, austere and resource-poor environments. We fund our humanitarian impact through merchandise sales and private medical contracts in international locations. This means we will never ask for donations, only your support!
The MBB story started in late 2015, when a small group of paramedics, nurses and doctors came together to support several remote communities access basic primary health care. The first team deployed in 2015 travelling into a remote Himalayan community where the first health post was established in a borrowed ‘UN’ tent. This health post is now part of a network of four remote clinical posts. The platform soon expanded to provide remote primary health care solutions, health education, and health infrastructure projects in remote and extreme environments. Following five years of sustained service in five countries, the global shutdowns in 2020 caused a dramatic evacuation of all overseas personnel and caused the platforms' income streams to dry up. Rising from the proverbial remnants in 2021, Medics Beyond Borders was created to continue that legacy to ensure that health care access and health education remain available to everyone.
Providing primary health care in remote communities was the basis for Medics Beyond Borders. Our teams deploy internationally in collaboration with relevant health authorities or through ministerial approval.
Medics Beyond Borders maintains a deployment roster of specialist clinicians for a variety of opportunities, some funded, some self-funded, in the name of health care access and health education.

Shop with a difference
Not only does our merchandise look awesome, it provides tangible assistance to our project partners in health. Sales of our merchandise provide funds to support medical equipment acquisition, medicine, and clean water. When nearly 80% of illness in low GDP countries is related to poor water quality and inadequate sanitation conditions, it is a vital first step in improving community health.
Wear it for Water!
Every shirt purchased before the 30th June 2022 will provide one year of clean drinking water to a person in Nepal or Uganda. We reckon that is a pretty good reason to show your support and represent MBB.
The role of the Clinical Advisory Committee is to provide guidance and steer the clinical activities of Medics Beyond Borders. In doing so, the Committee works to ensure that Medics Beyond Borders act in accordance with the local and international law, conventions, regulations and protocols. It also provides guidance and develops and maintains ethical standards based on a code of conduct, a scope of practice, medical definitions, and clinical guidelines.
A key Committee responsibility is to ensure good governance is in place. The Committee will monitor and review its own performance and strive to maintain a skilled and diverse membership. It also maintains a recognition process that acknowledges the efforts of our volunteers, members and staff.
