EGPAF, Lesotho Ministry Of Health Launch Mobile Health Clinics
“Last month, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) teamed up with the Lesotho Ministry of Health (MOH) to launch two mobile health care clinics that will provide HIV/AIDS and other health care services to residents in Lesotho’s rural communities,” Mapalesa Lemeke, an EGPAF communications officer based in Lesotho, writes in the foundation’s blog. “The clinics are made possible thanks to generous support from [PEPFAR and USAID],” she notes, adding, “EGPAF will work with the MOH to provide integrated health services to patients in the remote areas of the mountainous districts of Thaba-Tseka and Mohale’s Hoek, where there is a high prevalence of HIV among pregnant women along with high rates of malnutrition among children and overall limited access to maternal, neonatal, and pediatric care” (8/13).
