The Porta-Doc is a one-of-a-kind mobile medical clinic operated by The Outreach Program in the Illunda Ward of Tanzania. The Porta-Doc serves thousands of people across the ward, traveling to the 8 major villages on a regular basis to provide basic medical care, prenatal care, midwifery, pediatric support, childhood inoculations, and emergency medical transport. When the Porta-Doc began operating in the Illunda Ward, the childhood mortality rate was at 60%, over the last 6 years that rate has dropped to just 6%, and 100% of the children born in the area have received vaccinations.
