IOM Mobile Clinic
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) set up a mobile clinic to provide basic healthcare services to the population of about 1400 people in Gbaigbon and neighboring communities in Bomi County, Liberia, who would otherwise be unable to reach a healthcare facility.
A team of one doctor, three nurses, and two ambulance drivers, who helped in screening the patients, treated close to 100 persons on the site, with some more severe cases being provided first aid and then taken to Bomi Hospital.
Dr. Nisar Ul Khak, Medical Coordinator for the IOM Ebola treatment unit in Tubmanburg, said “UNMEER helps in coordinating the agencies and NGO’s who are willing to support the mobile clinic.”
