Our team

Primmed was founded by Pieter Aalbersberg in 1989. The company started with a focus on safer travelling.

In the beginning, Pieter imported vaccinations and immunoglobulins (antibodies). This led to a demand for information and education in addition to prevention. Pieter didn’t just want to inform doctors, hospitals and the health service, but also the travelers. Care Plus was founded to develop a variety of travel products.

Care Plus is an authentic Dutch company with over 25 years of experience in the field of travel and health. We are market leaders in central Europe and are committed to inform and facilitate travelers regarding safe and healthy travels.

On return, a traveller should only have great stories to tell and be left with wonderful memories.
