• In the East African region, medical care on the ground is sometimes non-existent

First Response was established in April 2017 and has recently partnered with Response-Med, a regional medical support company whose team has over 40 years’ experience in providing services to the remote exploration and mining companies in the East African and Sub-Saharan regions. (Response-Med)  Today we operate across the oil, gas, mining and infrastructure development industries. We also serve UN Development Agencies, production companies and a range of NGO clients.

Quality care comes standard

Our promise of access to the top regional medical specialists, excellent paramedics and world-class clinical treatment comes standard. We offer our services at competitive rates, while never compromising on quality.

An African-born team, we believe clients choose to partner with us because of our in-depth local insight and our ability to apply region-specific treatment protocols.
