Comprised of like minded great people, organisations and companies all trying to make a difference in the world.
Backpacker Medics (BPM) is a platform for Paramedics and other pre-hospital workers to engage with the world of humanitarian work.
Their goal is simple: to take effective medical care to those who need it most.
They are a wholly volunteer and donation-based project which endeavours to provide paramedical services in the truest sense: by working “beside” existing organisations and authorities to deliver mobile pre-hospital healthcare and community education.
The focus of BPM is now to provide short-term, dynamic humanitarian relief if-and-when such events unfold.

Medics Beyond Borders
Medics Beyond Borders has grown from an award-winning platform that delivers primary and emergency health care solutions in remote, austere and resource-poor environments. We fund our humanitarian impact through private medical contracts in international locations. This means we will never ask for donations, only your support!
The MBB story started in late 2015, when a small group of paramedic’s nurses and doctors came together to support several remote communities access basic primary health care. The first team deployed in 2015 travelling into a remote Himalayan community where the first health post was established in a borrowed ‘UN’ tent. This health post is now part of a network of four remote clinical posts. The platform soon expanded to provide remote primary health care solutions, health education, and health infrastructure projects in remote and extreme environments.
Following five years of sustained service in five countries, the global shutdowns in 2020 caused a dramatic evacuation of all overseas personnel and caused the platforms income streams to dry up. Rising from the proverbial remnants in 2021, Medics Beyond Borders was created to continue that legacy to ensure that health care access and health education remains available to everyone.
Alpine Access Australia
Alpine Access Australia has evolved from a lifetime of experiences in the Australian Alps. Originally a backcountry guiding company, Alpine Access is now also a provider for Avalanche Canada in Australia offering their AST1 (avalanche skills training) curriculum.
Recognising the demand from those wanting to get started in the backcountry has led Alpine Access Australia to focus on providing an information platform sharing skills and knowledge.
The AST1 course incorporates information gathering, snow science, route selection, identification of avalanche terrain and companion rescue. It is a fun, stimulating and challenging two-day course that is just as relevant for those entering the winter backcountry in Australia as overseas.
