In just three words.

British collaborations being a force for good in the world

Mexico City: In September 2017, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake rocked Mexico City and its neighbouring states causing extensive damage and hundreds of fatalities. As some homes had no official addresses and many buildings and streets were reduced to rubble, there was no accurate way to tell rescuers where to find trapped and injured people.

A simple way to communicate location is critical to effective disaster response. GPS coordinates provide accurate and universal location information, but the long strings of numbers are difficult to communicate and prone to human error.

This is where the simplicity and speed of a British creation can help. what3words is a global grid of 3m x 3m squares where each square has been
pre-allocated a fixed and unique 3 word address. This British invention was used by the Government of Mexico working with
Infinitum Humanitarian Systems (IHS) in this disaster response.

A trusted partner for global health

The UK is internationally renowned for the excellence of its National Health Service (NHS).

As the largest integrated health system in the world, it delivers high-quality care to over one million patients every 36 hours.

We help our global partners achieve the same levels of quality and reliability within their own healthcare systems, enabling them to meet the needs
of a growing and ageing population, enhance patient care and ensure healthcare professionals get access to the best training.

Whatever your healthcare requirements, we can connect you to world-class expertise in the UK to meet your needs.

Working with International Aid Agencies and NGOs

The UK has a long-standing history of providing quality goods and services in countries around the world. We offer innovative solutions that international development agencies need, in order to help these agencies and governments as they work to tackle global and humanitarian challenges.

 

There are a wide variety of highly experienced British businesses supporting international projects and programmes funded by international organisations, in both the development aid and disaster relief/humanitarian aid sectors. The expertise of these companies span a range of sectors, from healthcare, construction and consultancy to technology, transport, and environmental services.

 

We understand that development agencies and governments want to procure goods and services from companies who have an international track record and a commitment to international growth along with market knowledge. We are able to provide access to companies that have proven operational capabilities in terms of the required skills in delivering products or services for projects and working on cross-border partnerships.

 

As part of the international tendering process, the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) works collaboratively with international organisations to understand their needs and acts as a conduit, connecting all the relevant parties.

 

DIT also has liaison officers who are based in the British Embassies/Consulates where the international aid/donor agency headquarters are based that can help facilitate introductions to UK companies.
