Project "Test For Life": Shipping of the Mobile Clinic to Mongolia 6th May 2019
After over 7 years of hard work our mobile clinic, tailor retrofitted from a 6 x 6 Land Rover into a self-sufficient mobile medical facility complete with medical inspection equipment and individual air conditioner with heater and potable water systems to enable it to function in the harsh outdoors of Mongolia, has been completed and loaded at the container port on 6th March 2019 for delivery to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia to start its mission.
The 'Test For Life' Project has continued for 10 years from 2005 to 2014 in Mongolia providing cervical cancer screening by conventional Pap Smear Testing and in 2012 it was adopted as the primary screening method at the national level.
Now we want to introduce the more sensitive, cost-effective and less false result HPV method test. Hope this becomes a new primary screening for the country as well. The mobile clinic will be used to provide this service and also to perform digital colposcopy and treatment.
I would like to express the deepest appreciation to the Rotary Club of Hong Kong ! And wish success to all of us to bring a new era in cervical cancer screening in the country !"
