Working in international medical assistance is not a job, it’s a calling. It demands precision, empathy, devotion and, most importantly, courage. On a good day, we love the impact that we can have on a member’s life when an illness is cured, a surgery is successfully performed, or an emergency evacuation sees them safely delivered to the nearest point of medical excellence. But on a bad day, when a life is lost, it’s absolutely devastating for everyone involved.

And citizens around the world are looking to business (61%) – over and above NGOs (57%), government (53%) and media (51%) – to step up and help solve society’s problems.
Long COVID is something we’re likely to be talking about for a long time. Not only does it have significant implications for individuals, families and employees, but it’s also having a large impact on employers dealing with reduced capacity and absenteeism in the workplace.
