Aspen Medical provides health expertise to the Vietnamese military

Aspen Medical has provided health expertise at a training and development event sponsored by the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) in collaboration with the Vietnam Peacekeeping Centre (VPC).  The GPOI is a capacity-building program funded by the US Department of State. The event took place between the 27th and 31st of July in Hanoi, Vietnam, with the aim of training Vietnam peacekeeping personnel.

We were contracted to deliver training for the deployment of a UN level two medical facility.  The 5-day training course was conducted by the company’s General Manager – Health Solutions, Annette Owttrim, who has had practical experience managing an Intensive Care and Emergency facility at a UN field hospital during the war in Rwanda in the 1990s.

Glenn Keys AO, Executive Chairman and Founder of Aspen Medical, said, “We are proud to have had the opportunity to contribute to this initiative and will continue to do so over the next 12 months. We look forward to supporting the Vietnamese military to achieve its goal of being able to deploy a level two field hospital in support of a UN mission.“

Aspen Medical is a leader in the provision of healthcare delivery, equipment and training to Defence Forces. In addition to providing this training to the Vietnamese military we also provided training to the Defences Forces of the UAE and South Sudan. We provided mobile deployable hospital facilities to the UAE military and medical equipment to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), as well as providing vital medical equipment and training to the UN Mission in Timor (UNMIT).  We also provide Care of Battle Casualties training in the UAE to Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel deploying to the Middle East and Central Asia.

On the domestic front, we deliver healthcare to 80,000 ADF personnel at 52 bases across Australia and provide medical support for ADF training exercises.
