MedicForce continues to expand with new projects planned in Nepal with old friend Hari Bhandary from Clinic Nepal and a hugely sucessfull CME and Student elective program is pioneered in Belize..
The logisitcs of traveling to Borneo were proving too expensive, a project closer to home was required. Jono rode his motorbike to Belize in search of inspiration and old friends. A wealth of projects and a delapidated clinic was the answer.
A small group of volunteers travel to Belize to rebuild the healthpost in Laguna village and start the healthworker education program. A bigger team returned that summer to continue the training initiative, and every year since.

Following a chance meeting with a group of Maasai performers in 2009 MedicForce partnered with the charity Osiligi to construct and outfit a community healthpost in Kenya. The team return in November

While working with the indigenous people on the TV show "Adrenaline Junky 3" Jono Bryant saw a need for medical aid projects in remote regions and promised to return.
The first of two expeditions to extremely remote regions in Borneo. It was during these expeditions that MedicForce found its identity and the importance of sustainability through education was realized.
