Student MedAID

Welcome to Student MedAID Manchester’s stall! They are available throughout the whole fair to answer your questions in the live chat.
The group are a new branch of Student MedAID (founded in Edinburgh), a student-led charity and society that aims to reduce wastage in the UK health system and work towards sustainable healthcare systems both nationally and globally.

The group collect unused medical equipment sourced from donors in the UK and co-ordinate their re-distribution to under-resourced healthcare institutions abroad. This requires volunteers to pick the equipment up, and volunteers (students on international placements, humanitarian workers, and NGOs) to take the equipment where it’s needed most. They will also be raising awareness about the need for sustainability within healthcare, with educational content being shared on their social media throughout the year.  Go to for more stories and testimonials.
