Aid Assistance was founded by medical doctors and legal professionals who are experienced in providing medical assistance services to the tourism industry in Turkey.

Dr. Cuneyt Ersoy, MD. is a Turkish physician who is the chairman of AID ASSISTANCE. Dr. Ersoy has became aware of the need to deliver healthcare assistance with highest international standards to the local and international tourism agencies while working at Kusadasi, Turkey, in the early 90’s.

Kusadasi is one of the tourism hot spots in Turkey, only 7 miles away from Biblical Ephesus. He has founded MEDITURK in 2000 to provide emergency travel services and travel medical assistance with highest international standards. Having partnered with cruise ships operators, hotel groups, insurance companies, and international travel agencies, MEDITURK grew rapidly from its headquarters in KUSADASI to IZMIR, adding a call center in ISTANBUL. The company was renamed as AID ASSISTANCE in 2008.


Currently, AID ASSISTANCE provides medical and technical assistance services to the employees and passengers of 80% of all cruise ships and 35% of all cargo ships visiting ports of Turkey, hotels with more than 30,000 total room capacity, major international insurance companies, and major travel agencies throughout Turkey.

Working with passion and genuine interest in the wellbeing of their customers, staff of AID ASSISTANCE help partner organizations mitigate health risks and unforeseen health related issues facing their travelers and employees.
