Video: Liberia's remote health needs
In Liberia, MSF mobile clinics are essential to the provision of medical aid in remote regions. For many in the country, these mobile visits are the only access to medical care they have.
In this film, the MSF team is visiting the village of Tiape where local people have built a clinic for MSF staff who visit every week. The visit lasts a day and is only four hours long as it take six hours travel for the visit and return. 60 to 80 patients maximum get treatment. It means three to four minutes for each consultation.
"Because the time to visit is so long, we are here for four hours only. In this time we can see 60 to 80 patients maximum. This is maybe three to four minutes for a consultation. It is not enough. There is no other NGO providing care," said MSF nurse Adam Walter.
