Mobile Medical Units (MMU)

Mobile Medical Units (MMU) was introduced with the objective of making healthcare more accessible to the larger population of rural India. It was initiated to ensure that basic and essential healthcare facilities are made accessible and affordable to senior citizens, financially weak families and to people in remote areas. These MMUs provide facilities free of cost, emergency relief and also helps transport people to hospitals if required. Help Age India, Honda's implementation partner for this initiative, runs these MMUs which are equipped with an MBBS doctor, nurse, social mobilizer and a driver. Services include checking blood pressure, testing for diabetes, general consultations, advice on personal hygiene and cleanliness of the surrounding.
