Medex is an association of mountaineers interested in all aspects of altitude related illnesses. Every few years we organise medical research expeditions to the Himalayas. Non medics are always welcome to participate in these expeditions as subjects.


We try to raise awareness of the various ilnnesses related to altitude. We have produced a book, written in simple English, which can be downloaded free of charge from our website. We are also heavily involved in post graduate education for doctors and the Dimploma in Mountain Medicine.
