Up Close Look at Orant's Mobile Outreach Clinic
Orant’s Mobile Outreach Clinic is a healthcare facility on wheels. Every morning, the mobile team drives to hard-to-reach rural areas. At each village, they unpack their vehicle and set up shop. Our Mobile Outreach Clinic makes healthcare accessible to patients who live up to 2 hours’ walking distance to the nearest static clinic or hospital.
The Mobile Outreach Clinic team is a well-oiled machine. They work efficiently and joyfully together to deliver quality healthcare.
Because the Mobile Outreach Clinic travels, cleanliness and organization are of the utmost importance.
Each patient gets a blood pressure check-up as part of our standard primary care.
Malaria tests require a quick prick of the finger. Within minutes, the test shows results. Testing and treating malaria only costs about USD$1.

Orant’s Mobile team treats about 400 people a day during the malaria season.
Orant’s Mobile Outreach Clinic travels with a fully stocked pharmacy. Pharmacists carefully count out prescribed medicines. Then, they communicate dosage and frequency to patients.
