Y’ello Doctor Mobile Medical Intervention
The Y’ello Doctor Project is designed to provide free primary healthcare services (medical outreach) that involve consultations, medications, treatment, female hygiene & ante-natal packs to people in semi-urban and rural communities via 6 state-of-the-art mobile clinic trucks in Anambra, Gombe, Kano, Kwara, Lagos & Rivers, under the current phase which was implemented in 2022.
MTNF Y’ello Doctor Mobile Medical Intervention Phase 3 kicked off November 16, 2021. Activations are being carried out in underserved communities across 6 six states which are Lagos, Kano, Kwara, Gombe, Anambra, and Rivers State. These states cut across Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones. These selected communities will benefit from medical screening, diagnosis, consultations, treatment, and drug prescription, as well as referral services.
The third phase of this project was in partnership with Market Doctor; the project implementation partner, Mactay; the vehicle maintenance partner, participating States Ministry of Health (SMH) and the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA).
In its 3rd phase, 629 communities, and over 52,507 people benefitted from the healthcare services, which include treatment for diarrhea, malaria & respiratory tract infections, screening for diabetes, HIV & hepatitis, general consultation service, and other ailments.
So far, since its inception in 2014, about 710,000 individuals nationwide have benefited from this initiative in 1,089 communities across 12 Nigerian States (Delta, Ogun, Katsina, Taraba, Abia, Niger State, Lagos, Kano, Kwara, Gombe, Anambra, and Rivers State).
