The Médecins du Monde Canada Mobile Clinic — a medically equipped and staffed van— expands its reach

February 1, 2016

Médecins du Monde is a medical humanitarian organization committed to helping those most vulnerable abroad and here in Canada. Their Mobile Clinic—a medically equipped and staffed van—travels to reach people throughout Montreal. Patients receive wound care, vaccinations for hepatitis A and B, testing for sexually transmitted infections and blood-borne infections, as well as follow-up treatment. As a navigator, the clinic refers patients for additional health and social services as needed and plays an important role in connecting marginalized patients and the Health and Social Services Network. GSC funding will allow the Mobile Clinic to expand its coverage.
