Kibale Mobile Clinic

               Tropical, rural communities face a constant struggle for survival and one of their central issues is health care (e.g., in the community I have worked for the last 3 decades, 30% of all deaths among children between the ages of 2 and 4 are caused by malaria, a disease that could be easily treated or simply prevented by using mosquito nets over beds).  Most of this suffering is not caused by a lack of effective drugs or technology, but sadly, because accessibility to health services and simple preventative measures are simply not there.  These issues are most severe in remote regions where health services are limited and these remote areas are often home to protected areas for wildlife.  This juxtaposition between humans and protected areas provides a unique opportunity for a partnership between health care and conservation that I have developed through my Mobile Health Clinic System in Uganda. 

               To take this opportunity, we established a Mobile Health Clinic, a refurbished ambulance I purchased in Canada and shipped to Uganda that now regularly travels around Kibale National Parkm Uganda. The ambulance brings basic health care, family planning, deworming, HIV/AIDS detection, treatment, and counseling, vaccinations, and health and conservation education to remote villagers around the park.
