Access to caregivers and immunization
Bring caregivers/immunization to the needy by piggybacking off existing public transit.
Describe what you intend to do and how you'll do it in one sentence (required 250 Characters)
Existing public transportation platforms (bus, train, etc) will be outfitted with temporary micro clinics taking up an estimated 2 or 3 seats that move through communities of need making access easier and more convenient.
Explain the idea (less than 2,000 characters)
The idea would be best prototyped in a large city with a bus system that has loops through neighborhoods with large populations in need. A parent could board a bus outfitted with a temporary micro clinic (signage on outside of bus) with child in tow, at no charge, get the immunization, and then get off the bus at the same stop or take a return rout. The micro clinic would be little more than a trained provider with rounds of immunization sitting on a bus/train and administering the product to the child sitting next to them.

The endusers are the extreme poor anywhere in the world but I personally have very little firsthand experience working with this type of demographic.
How is the idea unique? (750 Characters)
The idea's benefits are its piggybacking nature where it utilizes existing infrastructure to keep cost low. My organization is me but I have a great deal of experience in product development and implementation. I am 53 years old and looking for my next challenge so I would be a dedicated resource that would build out from there.

Its just me but I'd first identify a city to develop the prototype in, Detroit, Indianapolis, Chicago? I'd then develop a relationship with a clinic to develop a solution working with the local public transportation administration. Then test, refine, and report findings.
