Mobile health care

Mobile HealthWhile most Ugandans live within 5 km of a public health facility,it does not translate into service provision and utilization. Rather the facilities are often understaffed with frequent stock outs of medicines.

For the most part communities are not necessarily aware or trusting of the services in these facilities. Access is particularly harder for the mobile  populations we work  with  such as transporters, truck drivers, road constructors, uniformed  personnel, fishing communities, sex workers and communities which  interact  with  these categories of people. HPI through the  support  of our partners is able to set up mobile clinics including moonlight HIV Counseling and Testing camps which operate at night  to suit the needs of mobile groups like long distance truckers,and commercial  sex workers. The clinics are staffed with a multi-disciplinary team of counselors, clinicians, laboratory  personnel, social workers and community health promoters  including village  health teams. In the clinics clients receive outpatient care, health education,counseling,effective referral,linkages to other services and ongoing support. Our service package includes a strong component of client follow up through the community health promoters, clinic social workers and the use of mobile phones to call or send SMS reminders for appointments and helpful tips.
