About the Wellness Wagon (Mobile Clinic)

The Wellness Wagon was initiated to mitigate some of the challenges to accessing health care, which include: long queues at health facilities; inadequate staffing and medical resources; school absenteeism as a result of having to travel long distances to health facilities and children unaccompanied by adults not being taken seriously by health officials. In 2020, the wellness wagon supported the health screening of over 3000 people.
