Mobile clinics for rural areas in Zambia

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.

    I am interested in researching what the mobile clinics in zambia are all about for a matric project at school. I need a focus question for my project and was wondering if you could help? I live in Zambia so would be interested in looking further into this topic when I get home. Do you know a site where I could get more information? Thank you
