We’re excited to announce that MST will be at YPO EDGE 2017, also known as the Young Presidents’ Organisation (YPO) Global Leadership Conference, to tell the world about the positive impact we’re making with our mobile clinics.
Three MST representatives, CEO Fernando Acafrao, Christopher Rolfe and Romy Heldsinger will be travelling to YPO EDGE Vancouver in March to meet and network with more than 2,400 YPO members from around the world. This is a fantastic opportunity to not only tell others about MST ventures but also learn from other inspiring leaders how they are impacting the world.
Rolfe says he is excited to tell the rest of the world about MST’s ability to take essential services to communities who can’t access these and expanding their reach globally. “MST is doing something pretty unique in terms of the solutions they’re building. From designing to manufacturing to staffing to delivering to their customer. It’s a full-stack solution and they do it with a lot of passion, integrity, and belief. The ability to take these types of services to people in rural areas is not just South Africa-based. There are other emerging markets that have similar challenges but don’t have as complete a solution as MST and that’s where we want to showcase the company and its services.”
MST has identified 18 countries where possible partnerships can be set up and will be aiming to meet with clients and investors to take the Mobile Health Clinics (MHC) and Mobile Schools Health (MSH) solution global. These countries include Mexico, Brazil, Tanzania, Nigeria, Bangladesh, and India – countries with similar demographics and challenges to South Africa. “The MST medical solution is probably the most advanced, they’ve taken HIV testing down from six weeks to same-day testing and treatment. That’s massive. And what they’ve done with MSH – putting primary healthcare, optometry, and dentistry in one mobile unit and combined with their tracking abilities, that’s globally competitive,” said Rolfe.
The rest of the MST team is equally excited about the global prospects and are looking forward to finding out where we’ll be impacting the world next. We wish our Vancouver team all the best!
