Mobile Clinic for ADs
My idea involve use of mobile clinics which will deliver healthcare and counselling services at the doorstep of Atopic Dermatitis patients.
Please elaborate on your proposed solution to the challenge in no more than 300 words.
My solution(which is a product of AD patient-focused study) involve use of movable clinics to deliver routine and basic healthcare services at the doorstep of people affected by atopic dermatitis.
The mobile clinic will render preventive, educative and curative healthcare services.The mobile clinic will provide a health insurance for them and also save them the stress of visiting the hospital.There will also be an Avenue for the patients to ask questions to Doctors through a call and messaging system at any point in time.
In addition, there will be information on the causes, symptoms, signs and management of atopic dermatitis inscribed on the mobile clinic vehicle.The information will be updated on a daily basis. This will enable community members who are not suffering from atopic dermatitis to understand the cause and transmission of atopic dermatitis and MOST IMPORTANTLY understand that atopic dermatitis is not easily transmitted through skin-skin contact.We will give them T-shirts with awareness information on atopic dermatitis inscribed on them.
I believe this project is Important because it will create a kind of social network among people suffering from atopic dermatitis and give them the Avenue to share their experiences with each other and with health personnels.
Through this project, I aim to improve the health and well being of people living with Atopic dermatitis, reduce the stigma they face and also educate the general population about Atopic dermatitis.
