WHO and its many partners regularly deploy mobile clinics and medical teams to reach people cut off from access to health services. For many people access to these mobile clinics and teams may be their only source of health care.
Mobile clinics offer flexible and viable options for treating isolated and vulnerable groups as well as to newly displaced populations. When coordinating crisis response, WHO arranges for mobile health care teams to go by foot, bike, moto, boat or vehicle.
The demand for mobile units keeps rising. WHO may buy mobile clinics or supply them, or pay for partners to buy or supply them.
The mobile lithotripsy unit made its first appearance in June 1995; the staff onboard treated their first patient at Southern Cross, Christchurch. With more than 12,600 patients treated since its foray, the unit services both private and public hospitals across the country and creates additional capacity for hospitals and medical centres to treat patients close to home.
The lithotripter is operated by four specialised Medical Radiation Technologists (MRTs) who work one week out of four. The MRTs are highly skilled and experienced staff whose role is not only to operate the lithotripter but to review results following treatment and determine whether the patient needs to have further treatment. The local urologists, anaesthetists and other nursing and technology staff are trained to work on the unit when it visits their community.
The unit is driven by three ‘steerologists’ (drivers) who work in shifts and carry out maintenance on the vehicle as and when required.
