Hospitainer Mobile Obstetric Care Unit (CEmONC)

Reusable Maximum Flexibility

General description
The Hospitainer Mobile Maternal Care Unit (CEmONC) consists of a 40ft standard shipping container designed to facilitate Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care (CEmONC) and services for victims of sexual violence. The shipping containers are transformed into a medical facility with extremely robust characteristics. The unit is fitted with an operation room, a recovery room and a storage/sterilization room.

The obstetric care unit is placed on a trailer with a truck for maximum mobility. This Hospitrailer facilitates Caesarean sections, surgical treatments of sepsis, laparotomies, fistula care, and surgical repair of vaginal and cervical tears. Surgical operations for victims of gender-based violence can also be performed. Equipment and medicines for surgical procedures will be delivered as well.

A CEmONC Hospitrailer is a high-quality medical product that allows the medical provider to perform obstetric care in disaster areas, conflict areas and hard-to-reach areas. The CEmONC Hospitrailer facilitates flexible and adequate health service provision in situations of abrupt need of health services and in situations of fluctuating health care demand.

The major advantage of a mobile medical unit is the flexibility of the health service to cover larger areas, for example, travel on nomadic tribe migration routes, and the flexibility to quickly relocate the medical unit when demand is (geographically) shifting.

Due to the multifunctional use of the CEmONC Hospitrailer we hope that victims of gender-based violence are more inclined to seek medical care, as services can be obtained in a ‘neutral’ environment, avoiding possible moral and cultural stigmatization.

All necessary technical installations are delivered with the CEmONC Hospitrailer, like an internal water purification system, water storage, and energy supply through a generator. The generator is connected and secured on the front of the trailer. The Hospitrailer is fitted with medical equipment and consumables for a complete medical solution. A general list of items is available, and specific equipment or consumables can be arranged upon customers’ request.
