MetadataShow full item record
Multi-purpose Mobile Young Child Clinics were developed following a Comprehensive Mass -immunisation Campaign in the Ankole district of Uganda. Combining curative and preventive functions, and run entirely by teams of medical auxiliaries, the Clinics were designed as an expedient until basic health services are developed widely enough to cover all rural areas. The effective coverage of each clinic was shown to be a radius of 6 km (3.5 miles).
