Medex was formed in 1992 in order to support the charitable works of Medical Expeditions. Today Medex co-ordinates research expeditions and social events for a growing membership. Sharing the experience and research findings of several successful expeditions, Medex members have recently collaborated to produce and publish a free book entitled ‘Travel at High Altitude’. This site contains information and photographs from previous expeditions and events, as well as what’s next on the Medex calendar.
