The Breathe Again Project
University of Plymouth
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) is the third leading cause of death worldwide. The University of Plymouth is leading on several projects within the IPCRG FRESH AIR programme including the pulmonary rehabilitation projects. The work involves travel and activity in remote settings, including in mountain villages in Crete and remote high-altitude nomadic communities in the Kyrgyz Republic and rural communities in Vietnam and Uganda.
The 625 have been working in support of the production of a range of educational and promotional films related to the outreach work performed by the university and led by Dr Rupert Jones. Our ‘behind the scenes’ services are designed to help academic institutions to share their work as widely as possible and to create maximum positive impact with their research and findings.
Emergency Response Cover
- We provide paramedics to travel with researchers and academics to remote and rural locations across the globe. Our paramedics are highly experienced in remote and austere environment emergency medicine as well as technical rescue.
Risk, Threat and Vulnerability Management
- Our operational support teams develop new and interpret existing country, region and local risk, threat and vulnerability profiles to increase the safety of traveling staff.
- Our camera crews are able to travel anywhere in the world to document the activities of academics and practitioners to help share education as far and as wide as possible.
“For the Breathe Again crowd-funder film we travelled to the most rural parts of Africa, that’s quite an undertaking and certainly isn’t without risk. Link and Bloom recommended The 625 for the on-location camera work – and we got so much more than we expected. The camera operator was also a specialist paramedic with a wealth of international experience in the humanitarian sector. He truly understood our work and you can see that in the film. In remote locations little problems can soon escalate beyond control, your team members need to be robust, dedicated and dynamic problem solvers. That’s certainly our experience of The 625 – they are problem solvers of the highest order.” Dr Rupert Jones – University of Plymouth
