Mobile medical vehicles are custom-built medical clinics that use integrated technology to provide access to health care for the general population. According to the World Health Organization, they send mobile medical vehicles to disadvantaged areas that are cut off from medical facilities. Most of these vehicles offer primary and preventive care, and some offer dental care. However, these vehicles are not a one-size-fits-all health care solution, but focus more on low-income areas. Mobile medical vehicles provide several types of services, but their main purpose is to provide health care services in low-income areas. Around the world, rural populations and poor regions are unaware of their health status because most people cannot even afford to get a proper checkup due to their location and financial hardship. The availability of mobile medical vehicles can help solve this problem. Health professionals in India and other countries with similar economic problems screen large segments of the population with easily accessible mobile vans. Mobile medical units are a resource that provides flexible and easy options for these populations and treatment in affected areas. According to the WHO, Syrian children in Aleppo were treated with such mobile clinics. In addition to Syria, we see similar facilities in Iraq, Gaza, Yemen, etc. Providing such humanitarian medical care would not be possible if it were not for the mobility and ease of service that mobile clinics provide. They also help with the stigma of health care - many families in such areas do not want to go to the hospital, either because of cultural or economic constraints. Families in rural areas cannot travel to urban centers for routine medical checkups. When a medical vehicle happens to be near them, they are able to get a checkup without any worries. What's more, a mobile health center can shorten appointment times and ensure that the elderly and other emergency patients are seen immediately. According to the report, Sweden is using mobile health units to improve the accessibility and quality of medical facilities as well as services for the elderly. With all these great medical benefits, mobile medical vehicles can serve patients better. Keep in mind that the goal of medical advances is to expand coverage and serve more patients, especially in poor or remote areas, and in war or conflict zones that cannot be easily reached or where medical facilities are limited. Mobile medical vehicles also help improve the global health response, especially during pandemics. Mobile medical vehicles can also benefit many health care providers by allowing them to attract new patients, as more people will be encouraged to visit health care facilities and be diagnosed and treated early. Health literacy can also be improved, as many people will gain knowledge about how to take better care of themselves with proper hygiene practices. In this technological world, mobile medical vehicles have been called the savior of the healthcare industry.
