Overview of position Need Statement: The polio program has been moving towards implementing integrated services in polio high-risk areas of Uruzgan province. This initiative is rolled out to support the underserved population who have been cut off from essential basic health services. In addition to that recent Health Cluster estimates suggest that more than 7 million people have no or limited access to essential health services due to insufficient coverage by the public health services and direct interruptions due to conflict and insecurity  or hard to reach areas, in Uruzgan out of 825 Villages, 197 Villages on white areas where the people have no or limited access to essential health services which represent 24% of the number of villages in Uruzgan, therefore UNICEF decided to cover and reach those vulnerable populations through Thirteen mobile health teams modality in the form of mobile health teams and mobile clinics to reach as many people as possible with health services

 

 

 

Rational: Mobile health care delivery is an innovative model of health services delivery that provides a wide variety of services to vulnerable populations in areas with no access to health facilities. The clinics services including medical services, antenatal care, post-natal care, family planning services and vaccinations, nutrition, distribute the essential medicine to the patient according to doctors’ prescription and polio promotion items. These mobile clinics are resourced by health workers who are not on BPHS pay and not paid by government. They receive incentive for days of deployment into communities. These services are not provided by BPHS because falls outside scope or jurisdiction of health facilities and UNICEF staff cannot perform this service delivery.
