AmeriCares India: Access to Health Care for the Urban Poor Mobile Medical Clinic Program.

Dr Divyesh Devaliya

Surviving in the city is a daily crisis, for the slum population in Mumbai who are essentially migrants from the villages and small towns seeking to escape rural poverty. Extremely high population density, food insecurity, poor access to drinking water and sanitation coupled with high cost of living and job insecurity adversely affects their quality of life. The disease pattern is typical leading to indicators worse than those in the villages; this fact blanketed by better-than-average morbidity and mortality indicators of the city.

The AmeriCares India Mobile Medical Clinic Program is an established & unique model of ‘Access & Continuity of Care’ striving to provide access and continuity of quality primary care for marginalized communities in urban slums, using mobile medical units coupled with information technology.
