THE ANSWER: OUTREACH
Considering systemic challenges faced by marginalized populations in situation of vulnerability in accessing health care services, Doctors of the World Mobile Health Clinic is a significant move to reach out in a time and location where it is most needed.
In line with BC province health measures and their strategic plan, the Doctors of the World Mobile Health Clinic goes to areas where there are gaps in services and where the most vulnerable populations are found.
Doctors of the World focus on harm reduction, health promotion and education to empower and support people to take care of themselves and reduce risks.
Aboard the Clinic, in a private and safe environment, Nurses develop relationships, provide care, and listen without judgment.
