Southwest Asia has been a focal point for several Medweb initiatives. In Afghanistan, Medweb installed and provided training for a deployable telemedicine clinic. This clinic enables doctors and patients in separate locations to communicate via voice and visual links. Medweb also improved satellite communications at a lab in Jalalabad.
Medweb also served Tristan de Cunha, a remote island west of South Africa that can only be reached by a weeklong boat trip. The company enhanced telemedicine capabilities and continues to provide technical support and training there.
In the US, Medweb aided victims of Hurricane Katrina with a mobile medical triage unit on the ground at Touro Hospital and on board the USNS Comfort.
