Rosa Afonso, counsellor, explains to a patient how to follow the treatment prescribed at the mobile clinic.
MSF is running mobile clinics to areas of Beira hard hit by Cyclone Idai. During these clinics our staff provide care for patients suffering for infected cuts and small wounds, respiratory tract infections, skin conditions as well as diarrhea. Importantly, they also go door to door looking for cases of diarrhea that may need treatment at the local health centres. Diarrhea can be easily treated with oral or IV rehydration as well as antibiotics. During the mobile clinic, if the team finds a patient in need of in patient care they are transferred to the health centre or hospital by MSF.
