LTE Medical & Supplies contracted TFM to build mobile TB screening clinics that would be suitable for the rugged Mozambican environment.

The Global Fund contracted LTE Medical & Supplies to supply the Mozambican Ministry of Health with a turnkey solution for mobile TB screening clinics. TFM stepped-up to the challenge and exceeded all the clients’ expectations. In just 8 weeks TFM successfully delivered the world-class conversion of the mobile clinics.

The mobile TB screening clinics comprise of a 6X4 8.5m truck with x-ray, operator and laboratory rooms. Additionally, solar and generator power are incorporated to offer off the grid operation.

Mobile clinics and healthcare vehicles can take on various forms from small panel vans, light duty trucks, heavy duty trucks with 4×4 and 6×4 capability to buses, as well as container based and pre-fabricated facilities.

TFM manufactures these mobile clinics and healthcare vehicles using an aluminium Panel-Loc structure (an extruded aluminium interlocking panel design), which is aesthetically pleasing, robust and corrosion resistant, designed specifically for harsh African road conditions. Its modular structure provides for ease of repair. The double wall structure gives natural insulation and can be additionally lead-lined for X-ray room requirements.

Just as varied are the disciplines and services offered in these units ranging from primary healthcare services, mother & child services, laboratory and pathology services, dental & eye services, occupational health screening, radiology and imaging services to more specialised surgical intervention and medical emergency services.
