In a bid to enhance unhindered access to Healthcare services, the Ministry of Health and Sanitation continue to provide Standard, accessible & FREE healthcare services to the people of Bandajuma Sowa, Pujehun District through hospital on Wheels.

Improving healthcare is a key priority commitment of President Bio, the hospital on Wheels provide services to children, women and persons with disabilities.

Protecting people from the financial consequences of paying for health services out of their own pockets reduces the risk that people would be pushed into poverty because unexpected illness requires them to use their life savings, sell assets and even destroying their futures and often those of their children.

Community-based healthcare is a way to address the needs of people who currently don’t have access to basic and quality healthcare.

The solution is a scalable, self-sufficient concept for primary healthcare delivery and social development.
