Truck drivers and other mobile workers often have difficulty accessing quality health care without losing valuable work time. Simple factors like limited operating hours and distance to health facilities are barriers for people who cannot take time off to seek medical treatment. As a solution, we developed the Roadside Wellness Centre, or Blue Box, concept to extend local health infrastructure and strengthen referral systems to meet the needs of some of Africa’s most hard-to-reach populations, including truck drivers, sex workers, and members of communities situated along transport corridors.
In 2017, 30% of our patients identified as being truck drivers.
In 2017, 24% of our patients identified as being sex workers.
In 2017, 46% of our patients were local community members.
