Accra, Ghana (December 15, 2013)  Odulair™ LLC, the world’s leading provider of advanced mobile health clinics and mobile medical vehicles today announced that the Company participated with the Ghana Ministry of Health in conducting three mobile clinic specialist outreach events at Agbogbolshie and Efua Sutherland Children’s Park in Accra, Ghana.

 

Each of the three specialist outreach events was conducted utilizing recently delivered Odulair Mobile Clinics. There were two mobile dental clinics, two mobile ophthalmology clinics, two audiology clinics, and two general medicine clinics in use at each event.

 

At Agbogbolshie, nearly 1,000 patients were diagnosed and treated within five hours. As most of the patients were younger men between 20 to 30 years of age engaged in manual labor, there demonstrated a variety of health issues commonly associated highly physical work.

 

In the first day at Efua Sutherland Children’s Park, nearly 1,600 school-aged children were diagnosed and treated within six hours. Just under 500 children benefited from receiving hearing tests, almost 400 received eye examinations, and hundreds received routine dental care including tooth extractions. The following day, over 1,200 children and adults from nearby schools and markets were screened, diagnosed, and treated.

 

Each of the specialist outreach events was conducted efficiently to maximize patient throughput providing the greatest number of services to the greatest number of citizens. The events also provided attendees the opportunity to register for National Health Insurance as a cost effective method of receiving care throughout the country.

 

As part of the Mobile Clinics for Africa Program, Odulair worked directly with the Ministry of Health in training doctors, dentists, nurses and allied health professionals for the provision of mobile health clinics. An Odulair team was on-site at all of the specialist outreach events as a continuation of this training.

 

These specialist outreach events were attended by Ms. Sherry Ayittey, Minister of Health; Dr. Constance Addo-Yobo, Director Specialist Outreach Program and Chief Dental Officer; Dr. Samuel Kaba Akoriyea, Director Institutional Care Ghana Health Service; Dr. Nichodemus Gebe, Head Biomedical Engineering Unit; and Frank Ansong, U.S. Embassy.

 

“The Ghana Ministry of Health is leading the entire African continent in incorporating mobile health clinics and specialist outreach events as part of their standard of care. They truly understand the healthcare needs of their citizens as well as the people’s inability to access healthcare facilities from remote regions,” said Anita Chambers, President and CEO of Odulair, LLC. “We are proud to continue this important work with the Ministry as part of our Mobile Clinics for Africa Program,” Chambers said.

ABOUT ODULAIR MOBILE CLINICS FOR AFRICA PROGRAM

Odulair founder and Fielding Graduate University Institute for Social Innovation Fellow Dr. Anita Chambers initiated the Mobile Clinics for Africa Program in 2012 in an effort to provide high quality, country specific custom mobile clinics to emerging nations at an affordable cost. To date, Odulair has designed mobile clinics to deliver healthcare for more than 40 medical specialties housed in platforms ranging from 30-foot (9 meter) highly mobile 4x4 truck-based clinics to 53-foot (16 meter) double expandable trailers.
