For many older people in slums and rural areas, quality health care is both unaffordable and inaccessible. Launched in 1982, HelpAge’s Mobile Healthcare service tackles this very problem. 109 such Mobi-Health Units (MHUs), each manned with a qualified doctor, a pharmacist and a social worker, dispense free treatment and medicines to disadvantaged older people. Each elderly beneficiary has a medical chart and their health is monitored constantly. In case of complicated cases, the MHUs also make referrals to local hospitals. Many corporate houses have been donating for the running cost of these mobile clinics.
