Future of Health: Shipping Containers For Pop-Up Health Clinics
An organization that uses simple interventions to save lives.
Containers to Clinics is an organization that has been working to supply pop-up health clinics in developing areas, using shipping containers to offer easy access to primary healthcare. C2C is focused on providing basic immunizations and educating local healthcare professionals, particularly to serve the health needs of women and children.
The C2C team explains the need and their operation below:
The facts are clear: simple interventions save lives. Bridging the global health gap is a matter of access and education. Critical medical interventions, such as childhood vaccines, are available. But mothers and children living in rural, underserved communities don’t have access to simple, life-saving medicines.
The C2C intervention directly targets this need: access and education. C2C health clinics will be implemented in underserved communities – communities to which the national health systems simply don’t have adequate reach. Our central programming targets women and children. C2C provides for childhood vaccinations, safe pregnancy and maternal health, treatment for infectious diseases, and robust community health education and training.
