Arian Teleheal is a pioneering telemedicine charity founded by Dr Waheed Arian which provides world-class healthcare advice to doctors in war zones and low-resource countries around the world.
Arian Teleheal has a growing network of around 100 volunteer doctors based in the UK, Europe, Canada and America, offering specialist support.
The volunteer doctors of Arian Teleheal use everyday technology (such as smartphones and secure social media) to advise local doctors working in areas which may be too dangerous or isolated for aid agencies to reach easily.
Arian Teleheal also uses more complex technology to provide educational, learning and research opportunities, helping local doctors develop their abilities to further benefit their patients.
The work of Arian Teleheal is credited with saving dozens of lives.
Arian Teleheal is the first in the world to successfully implement international live telemedicine support using everyday technology on a 24/7, 365 days-a-year basis, with rapid response times for most acute cases.
Arian Teleheal is also the first in the world to successfully use Augmented Reality technology to provide live international telemedicine consultation and teaching.
The work of Arian Teleheal also provides educational and research opportunities for doctors in developed countries, through their work with colleagues around the world.
VISION AND AMBITION
Our Vision is to save lives and improve futures in war zones and in low resource countries by using easily-accessible technology.
While doing this, we provide learning, teaching and research opportunities for our volunteers and collaborating organisations.
Our ambition is to expand Arian Teleheal to all war zones and low resource countries in the world; and to build large charity-based world-class medical specialist centres in war-torn and low resource countries.
