Mobile Library Evening School Children's Village Environmental Care Mobile Clinic

Why Mobile Medical Clinic?

There are many villages around Tiruvannamalai where villagers have no access or only limited
access to even basic medical care. Lack of transportation and time off work are often major barriers to traveling to medical care. Without medical care, many suffer from acute issues such as wound care and infections and chronic issues such as diabetes and hypertension. Without access to medical care, small issues can develop into bigger issues with implications not only to individuals but also to entire families.

Goal

Provide basic health care and health education to the people living in remote villages around Tiruvannamalai.

Impact

The Mobile Medical Clinic has not only reduced suffering and disease, it also has provided a sense of security to entire villages and has kept parents healthy and able to provide for their children. Regenboog also provides health education to the village people which is the sustainable solution for many of their health issues. Moreover, our staff members are available 24/7 to answer any health questions by phone.

Today the mobile clinic treats over 40,000 patients every year and the annual operating cost of the Mobile Medical Clinic is less than $29,000.  A donation of $20 provides medical care to 28 villagers.

Where?

At present the mobile medical clinic serves in Tiruvannamalai, Chengam and Polur Taluks (Taluk is a region of villages) and part of the Jawadhu Hills region.

How?

A team consisting of a doctor, two nurses, a pharmacist and driver cum social worker and an assistant travel to villages in The Mobile Medical Clinic.  The modern clinic has separate rooms for nursing care, doctor consulation, and a pharmacy. It is fully air-conditioned, has water tanks, an oxygen cylinder, refrigerator, and storage for medicines.

Three days a week, the mobile medical clinic visits the remote villages around Tiruvannamalai and Chengam area. Two days in a week, the team visits the Jawadhu Hills region by a jeep. The  Jawadhu Hills region is a very remote area far away from healthcare, education or any other basic infrastructure.
