  • The facilities are too far away and transport is costly
  • There is often a low-quality of care provided at health care facilities

  • Many of the services provided are preventative –
    decreasing the reliance on traditional services
  • Mobile Schools Health provides services at the child’s school –
    decreasing absenteeism and the financial burdens on families
  • The vehicle and services provided include quality one-on-one care and the best equipment available

A VOICE FOR THE VISION

Pheliswa Busika, Mpendulo Primary principal, said

“Mobile Schools Health has helped her school address two major problems”

  • Learner health
  • Absenteeism

A VISION FOR IMPACT

  • To decrease absenteeism in schools due to health-related illness
  • To increase academic performance of children at schools, resulting in improved self-confidence
  • To decrease the burden on over-stretched and under-resourced health care facilities
  • To decrease the cost for families to access quality health care
    • No transport costs
    • No loss of essential income due to visiting health services

"Many of the children’s parents work at jobs where, if they are absent they don’t get paid. By having these health checks conducted at our school, on the same day, we have saved them so much time and money. The initiative also helps in identifying problems at an earlier stage."

PHELISWA BUSIKA, MPENDULO PRIMARY SCHOOL PRINCIPAL
