International SOS in Namibia: our Capabilities

If you need Emergency Assistance while you are in Namibia, please call the Johannesburg Assistance Centre on +27 (0) 11 541 1300

International SOS Namibia was founded in October 2001 upon the merger of ‘Medical Rescue International’, which had been providing emergency medical services in Namibia since 1993, and ‘Aeromed’, which had been operating in the country since 1995. With such a background, International SOS Namibia has been operating in Namibia for almost 20 Years. The International SOS Namibia operations are seamlessly linked to the rest of our global network. 

To provide emergency medical support to clients across the vast country, we have established a permanent presence in the country, supporting both our onshore and offshore clients throughout Namibia at a local level. Our fleet of air ambulances, based in South Africa; Johannesburg, can be used to provide emergency assistance evacuation services across the country as they do elsewhere in the Africa region. International SOS Namibia is represented in the country by a Country Operations Manager, who manages all operations in the country at a local level. The Country Operations Manager also provides operational and administrative support to all our onshore and offshore medical personnel. 

Our clients include mining companies in different project cycles from exploration to production who we support as remote site projects throughout Namibia in the procurement of medical equipment and/or supplies, the provision of medical staffing (local or internationally sourced professionals) and emergency medical assistance according to international standards.  International SOS Namibia also supports large offshore companies such as Seadrill and PGS Petroleum, governmental agencies, corporations in industries such as energy and large-scale construction, banking and individuals and international assignees. 

International SOS Namibia’s medical services portfolio includes medical staffing services, medical assistance services especially for mobile workforce, medical training services which include the very popular AHA Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED training (certified by the AHA) as well as medical consulting services specially designed for businesses to make informed and intelligence-based medical decisions for their employees. We also coordinate global medical, health and security services for assignees requiring support outside Namibia, with coordination and support from our Johannesburg Assistance Centre.

All our clients benefit from:

  • International standards of care
  • Knowledge of local healthcare systems
  • Use of international protocols of providing medical treatment and care
  • 24-hour access to medical assistance and emergency response services
  • Continuous training of our medical personnel
