Med Air Africa: Mobile Healthcare for the Most Remote Mines

Mines are dangerous places, not least because of their often remote and hostile locations far from medical facilities. Med Air Africa, set up in 2010, is helping to bring medical rooms and equipment, highly trained staff and air assistance to mines across Liberia and South Africa.

Med Air Africa operates throughout the aeromedical industry to help provide the best possible solutions for a wide range of mining injuries. Working with mining companies from the very first stages of regulations and compliance, through to the running of 24hr medical facilities and response units, the company caters for some of the biggest mining firms on the continent.

Founder and general manager Jannike Bester and marketing manager Murray Anderson explain the most common injuries, and how to implement practices to protect and save miners.
