Africa Health Placements (AHP) is an organisation with a mission: to support and enhance healthcare systems in Africa, by finding, placing and retaining healthcare workers in rural and underserved areas. Since our inception in 2005, we have placed over 2000 doctors in southern Africa (half of whom are foreign nationals).
Floating Doctors works with local officials, relief groups and community leaders to identify and address specific needs in communities. Whether we are running mobile clinics for remote island communities; providing advanced life support training for the fire department on Roatan; lending hands and the expertise of our volunteers in local clinics on Bocas del Toro; coordinating and delivering supply shipments from international donors to local groups; or even transporting 12,000 pounds of lumber and material to Haiti and building two schools, Floating Doctors is about leaving the biggest possible, longest-term health benefits for the lowest expenditure of resources.

Each year millions of people around the world are affected by natural disaster and conflict. RedR rebuilds lives in times of disaster by training, supporting and providing aid workers to relief programmes across the world.
We do this by delivering appropriate and specialist training to relief organisations and their staff, enabling them to respond to the needs of those affected, effeciently and safely. We also help to ensure that skilled professionals are always available to respond to major global emergencies through our aid worker recruitment service and by advising and training potential new relief workers.
Rural Assistance Nepal (RAN) was set up to help advance education and to assist in the provision of healthcare in the rural areas of Nepal. Friends are supporting the salaries of teachers at government schools, and the salary of nurses (midwives) at a healthpost. RAN has helped to buy land for building more classrooms, set up school libraries, and helped to buy science and other materials for the schools in two villages in Dolakha and Solukhumbu.
