Flying Doctors Nigeria Founder Bags Aviation Award

The Flying Doctors Nigeria Founder, Dr Ola Brown, has been bestowed with the 2017 Aviation Most Remarkable Medical Personality Award.

The award was presented by the aviation industry watchdog, Nigeria Aviation Awards (NIGAV) at the prestigious annual award held in Lagos on 24 March, 2017.

The award bestowed on Brown by NIGAV is a recognition of Flying Doctors Nigeria’s role in saving lives during critical and emergency situations in sub-Sahara Africa.

Receiving the award Brown said she was grateful, adding that the award would propel her to use Flying Doctors Nigeria as a platform to rescuing more lives during critical times.

According to Brown, there is need to render prompt medical services to people in need, to save the lives of over 1 billion people who lose their lives globally due to lack of timely medical interventions.

Founded about 10 years ago, Flying Doctors Nigeria is West Africa’s first and leading indigenous air ambulance service organisation transporting patients across the region in medically equipped aircraft for quick medical care.

Flying Doctors air ambulance has transferred several patients from all over West and Central Africa for rapid specialist care.

The organisation also renders remote site medical solutions, medical infrastructural development and training services to corporate bodies and agencies.

The prompt medical service rendered by Flying Doctors Nigeria has variously been applauded by various experts as it helps in curbing unnecessary deaths during emergency situations.
