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.
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.
The success of Arian Teleheal has been recognised with a number of awards, including being the first and only UK recipient of a UNESCO Global Hope Coalition award.
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.
Arian Teleheal builds partnerships with leading organisations to help maximise the benefits of our work.
