Treat­ment of pre­ventable dis­eases in Africa is highly depen­dent on the avail­abil­ity of effi­cient capac­ity and ade­quate sys­tems on the given loca­tion. One of the many obsta­cles for med­ical pro­fes­sion­als in Africa is the lack of ade­quately equipped facil­i­ties. Could mobile clin­ics be the solu­tion to the prob­lem of lack of med­ical man­power, med­ical tech­nol­ogy, train­ing, and med­ical resources in many parts of Africa? Could this very well be the solu­tion for sus­tain­able health care facil­i­ties in Africa?

The pri­mary mis­sion of the mobile clin­ics is to deliver basic pri­mary health­care to remote com­mu­ni­ties that have lit­tle or no access to advanced health­care. Mobile Clin­ics are prop­erly equipped with full med­ical test­ing and exam­i­na­tion facil­i­ties that will facil­i­tate the deliv­ery of effec­tive and effi­cient med­ical care. The mobile clin­ics often come fully oper­a­tional; sup­plied with advanced tech­nol­ogy such as satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tion tool, patient care rooms, solar-​powered lap-​tops, health pro­mo­tion mate­ri­als and health­care pro­fes­sional train­ing mate­ri­als. The mobile clin­ics have the capac­ity to relo­cate with­out dif­fi­culty, allow­ing for increased patient care cov­er­age. Mobile health care is becom­ing the mod­ern advanced method of being able to ensure not only basic essen­tial health care, but edu­ca­tion and train­ing to mil­lions of peo­ple liv­ing in rural and urban areas. Nomadic Com­mu­ni­ties Trust (NCT) and the Com­mu­nity Health Africa Trust (CHAT) are ven­tur­ing out to remote areas of the Kenyan wilder­ness. They are cur­rently serv­ing over 70,000 peo­ple a year by trav­el­ling to remote Maa­sai and Sam­buru villages.

But what does doing a mobile clinic really involve? What are the chal­lenges? How sus­tain­able are they? Can they be dupli­cated or adapted to other areas? Please call with your ques­tions, sto­ries and com­ments as we explore this very impor­tant topic on African Health Dia­logue. We would be glad to hear your view.
