WAAF Enhances Access to Health Care and Treatment

West Africa AIDS Foundation (WAAF) with support from its onsite health centre, International Health Centre has introduced a new measure on enhancing the access to quality health care and treatment at the doorsteps of client with the use of a mobile van.

WAAF team conducts community outreach services, providing free STI screening and treatment, as well as HIV testing services. Through the mobile clinic van the services are provided with high level of privacy and confidentiality, something that normally gives a challenge during community outreaches.

With the experiences by using the mobile clinic, WAAF sees a big potential by including more services, especially ART services with the aim of getting more people on treatment and to keep them on treatment.
