The first batch of mobile clinics comprising seven, well equipped trucks have arrived in Zambia. The Ministry of Health spokesperson Dr. Kamoto Mbewe said that they were awaiting commissioning and would be sent to a province yet to be announced.
The mobile clinics are being supplied by a Chinese company National Aero Technology Import and Export Cooperation (Catic) after entering in an agreement with the Government. Mobile clinic units will provide for out-patients, x-rays, mini-theatres, laboratories, power supply and a dispensary for the benefit of people living in rural areas. A second batch of mobile clinics is expected in March.
