Mobile Clinics

The National Malaria Control Centre organized ‘mobile clinics’ around compounds to screen, test, and treat people. The Peace Corps Stomp Out Malaria Coordinator, Jane Coleman, and a Linking Income and Food Environment Volunteer, Laura Walls, walked around with community health workers and their loud speakers, letting people know to come to the ‘mobile clinic’ to get tested! Jane and Laura spent the rest of the morning with the patients and staff screening, testing and treating mothers, children under five and even some of their fathers. People were lined up around the clinic and many people went home with Coartem and will be happy and healthy for the month of May!
