Mobile Women’s Health Clinics are week-long Service Learning Trips focusing entirely on the health and wellbeing of women. In impoverished communities throughout Latin America and Africa, often times not enough education is provided on the importance of women’s health. By volunteering on the trip, students will help provide much needed educational resources and quality healthcare to women in the communities where MEDLIFE works.
Beyond a Mission Trip
A MEDLIFE Women’s Health Clinic provides women with quality healthcare and education throughout communities who lack access to basic health services. Working hand in hand with local professionals, students will gain first-hand knowledge about the challenges women face in impoverished communities in Latin America and Africa.
The MEDLIFE Women’s Health Clinic Difference
Bringing a Clinic to Women
Our Mobile Clinics travels to poor communities to provide quality care. They offer general OB/GYN services as well as preventative tests such as Pap smears and breast cancer screenings to women in communities that often do not have access to other health facilities.
Working with Local Professionals
Our OB/GYN stations at Mobile Clinics are staffed by local doctors and nurses who speak the language, understand local systems, and provide culturally sensitive care.
Providing Follow-Up Care
When our patients are faced with serious or long-term conditions, they are placed in our patient follow-up program where they work hand in hand with our in-country staff throughout the course of the treatment.
Offering Supplemental Education
Beyond the immediate care patients receive at Mobile Clinics, we regularly offer workshops and classes in the communities to continue informing people about the importance of reproductive health.
