Mobile healthcare for rural Ghana

Sherry Ayittey, Ghana’s Minister of Health, touring one of eight new mobile medical clinics

Sherry Ayittey, Ghana’s Minister of Health, seated, tours one of eight new mobile medical clinics that were introduced this month as part of the National Medical Equipment Modernization Project. OPIC is supporting the project by providing political risk insurance to  Belstar Development, LLC, the lead investor in the project. These mobile clinics will travel to currently underserved areas of the country and are equipped with backup generators so that they will be able to serve patients even when they do not have access to the electrical grid. The project plans call for a total of 8 mobile clinics and 10 maintenance and repair vehicles .
