“Today, ladies and gentlemen, I am elated to accept the Hospitainer Primary Health Care Unit on behalf of the Government of The Bahamas, but most especially on behalf of the people of the High Rock community and Grand Bahama. This wonderful addition to our health care facilities is a fully equipped hurricane proof 20-foot mobile medical clinic, with a consultant room. Thus, our health care teams will be able to administer care inclusive of hygiene, medical, mental and psycho-social health services at the right time and at the right place, to mitigate human suffering. This Hospitainer is essential for east enders as you rebuild your lives and homes.”
Minister of Health, The Commonwealth of the Bahamas, the Hon. Dr. Duane E. Sands M.P.
“The Hospitainer Mobile Unit supports mobility of a full range of diagnostic services and has the complete medical solution integrated in the container structure. It can be used immediately after the storm. Even falling trees cannot break the Hospitainer. It is fully insulated, fully air-conditioned, completely self-sufficient and watertight. It has its own filtration system, weather and storm resistant and safe, even used in combat site.”

A country with beautiful nature; thousands of islands surrounded by water. Every island has its own culture and way of life, each as diverse as the people and the landscapes they live in. Unfortunately the natural disasters that lurk are just as diverse. In recent months we have been in close contact with the BNPB Disaster Control organisation and the Ministry of Health and have learnt a lot from each other in the field of disasters and strategic approach.

Vulnerable groups in a society are very often the biggest victims of a conflict. This is also the case in countries like Iraq and Syria where conflicts threaten women and children in their everyday life, at home or in refugee camps. The vulnerable situation of these women and children is the reason why Hospitainer came up with the idea of a Maternitainer.
