Challenge

Mountain Fund's Mobile Medical Camps will bring volunteer medical staff to villages in Nepal's Rasuwa district, and Peru's Urubamba district, where regular health care is not available. 250-300 patient visits will be conducted during each 10-day camp. The equipment funded by this project will be used in 10 mobile camps scheduled over the next 5 years.

Solution

Each Mobile Medical Camp enables volunteer doctors, nurses, paramedics, optometrists & audiologists to address critical health needs, train local healthcare providers and provide preventive healthcare services in each village.

Long-Term Impact

Over 5 years the equipment funded by this project will allow us to conduct 2,000 - 2,500 patient visits. We will have a significant positive impact on the health and well-being of the communities we will serve.
