Bupa International has launched a new online portal with expatriate medical information and health news as part of its redesigned website.
It now features weekly columns from medical experts and industry specialists, plus regular news updates and videos tackling the health issues that matter to expatriates.
The new site also includes a section on Bupa International's Medical Centre, run by a team of doctors and specialist who provide 24/7 emergency help and advice to customers. At a click of a button, visitors to the website can now watch interviews with doctors and evacuation specialists or read testimonials from Bupa International customers.
Customers can also watch health videos from Bupa International's medical director, Dr Sneh Khemka, in a new You Tube channel feature, and find information about Bupa's charity projects around the world.
Bupa International is taking part in a mission to set up temporary health clinics in an area of Vietnam where medical services are in short supply. Dr Sneh Khemka is one of 20 volunteer doctors who will trek into villages in the northern district of Mai Chau where infections and malnutrition are major concerns.
Mette Nohr at Bupa International says: "Our new redesigned website has been driven by two guiding principles - creating a more interactive site to increase our dialogue with customers and developing our health information content to provide expatriates with a trusted health e-resource, wherever they are in the world."
