Mobile medicare, Onuador

The Ministry of Health will on Wednesday, September 16 2015, launch a National Medical Outreach Services dubbed “Onuador” as a means of bringing healthcare to the doorsteps of Ghanaians.

President John Dramani Mahama is expected to launch the Onuador Medicare at the event which would take place at the Sekondi Naval Base in the Western Region.

A statement issued by the Public Relations Unit of the Ministry of Health said: “The National Medical Outreach Services has been employed by the Ministry of Health as one of the means by which equity gaps in healthcare delivery can be bridged to some extent. It has been quite an effective adjunct to traditional interventions, which tend to be comparatively more capital intensive.”

During outreach exercises, the medical team is expected among others to provide interactive health education in communities in order to promote healthy life style and prevent diseases.

The team is also expected to provide emergency treatment to members of the community who would require such services as well as offer screening and treatment for general medical conditions, ophthalmology, dentistry, and hearing.
