We are delighted to be working with, and supporting our good friend Strive Masiyiwa who has recently been appointed as an African Union Special Envoy to mobilise the private sector response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Part of this response includes the creation of a COVID-19 Suppliers platform which we are very proud to be part of.
We were really pleased to have been able to offer the benefits of Medical Aid International’s experience in LMIC environments to the Virgin Orbital Ventilator team as they developed the ventilator. Here our Head of Biomedical Engineering, Tony Royston can be seen running a variety of tests. Other members of our advisory team were Dr Roy Miller, our Medical Advisor, who worked in Malawi for four years as a Consultant Anaesthetist and Tim Beacon, CEO of Medical Aid International and previously an Operating Department Practitioner.
