 Intervention Outline

Mobile Medical Units are now an integral part of the general health system, offering services to remote or difficult-to-reach populations. These  can be used to increase access to TB diagnostic and treatment services in the communities they serve.

The corporate could purchase a van, fabricate it with project name, company logos and key TB messages and fit it with the required medical equipment like X-Ray machine. To operate this van, the project would need the services of a project coordinator (part time), technician, field officers, MIS officer, driver and spend of fuel and maintenance.

The corporate can manage and fund the mobile unit van or give it to an NGO/external agency to manage. The mobile medical unit/van can also be customized with other machines and services to provide additional health services. 


Expected Impact

  1. Increased door to door screening for populations with limited access to health facilities
  2. Establishing linkages between the patients and government services
  3. State-of-the-art laboratory investigation services delivered at the doorstep of patients, reducing the delay in diagnosis
  4. Outreach camps to sensitize communities and increase awareness
  5. Corporate brand positioning in the community

Expected Investment

Capital Cost – INR 70-75 Lakh

Operational Cost – INR 30 Lakh per annum

Support from CTP Secretariat

  • Project designing
  • Establishing linkages with the State/District TB Cell
  • Technical support for e.g. guidelines/regulations to follow for X-ray vans
  • Facilitating private-private partnerships (with other corporates)

Help communities have access to screening services at their door step. A collaborative effort in Mobile Medical units can help in reaching out to the remote and the most difficult to reach populations. A mobile van with x-ray not only facilitates ease of access to  diagnostic services but also offers great opportunity for brand promotion through vans thereby enhancing goodwill for the brand within the communities.
