PROJECT MOVID- A Mobile Covid Care facility to trace, test and treat.

(Early Mobile Covid Care Facility)

A. Introduction and Background

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the grave limitations of our health systems when confronting the unexpected emergence of major diseases. As expected, the most affected are the poor. We believe that mobile healthcare delivery programs play an important role in effectively supporting underserved populations during pandemics, and can do so in a cost-effective manner.

In response, we plan to meet this emergency, on a war footing without much delay, and to reduce the burden on our existing healthcare infrastructure. Project Movid is offering to set up Mobile Covid Care centers offering free, qualitative medical care for Covid in Slums of Hyderabad. To begin with, the project will focus on starting One mobile covid care facility and scale up to 6 such facilities in the coming days. The 3rd wave is mostly affecting the upper airway and majority do not require hospital care. Hence limiting the traffic to healthcare providers helps also in curbing the spread.
