In Spring 2015, Trek Medics sent out an open invitation to local communities interested in implementing Beacon free of charge. After receiving an overwhelming reply from East Africa, our Director of Field Programs, Benjamin Gilmour, packed his bags and set off to Eastern Africa to scout out seven locations in Tanzania and Kenya. Upon his return, he had little doubt he’d found a strong partner in the Rural Tanzania Health Movement (TRHM), a community-based health organization in Mwanza, Tanzania, dedicated to improving health care for all. A few months later, we sent another Australian paramedic, Scott Campbell, out to Mwanza to work alongside TRHM’s Director, the indefatigable Dr. Marko Hingi, and begin building a community-based response system. Less than four months later, a new community EMS system and training program has been born, far exceeding all of our expectations.
