Mobile hospital for Congo
28 January 2015
This January Hospitainer helped implement the first mobile hospital project in Congo. The goal of the project is to bring free healthcare services to the people of Brazzaville. A team of Hospitainer provided technical training on location to 15 medical experts. The mobile hospital consists out of four medical trailers, including trucks and inflatable tents. The hospital facilitates medial services like surgery, sterilization, X-ray diagnostics, laboratory, dental and ophthalmology. Medicine and consumables are supplied for the first 2000 surgeries to help the medical team quickly start the provision of care. Hospitainer designed the trailers around the mentioned functions and supplied and installed the equipment. The trailers were build by our partner Lamboo.
The mobile hospital is installed next to a local hospital in Pointe Noire. It will stay on this location for one month. After this startup month the mobile hospital will be driven to the next location.
