Even today many Latvian children, especially in rural areas, lack access to primary medical care. In addition to needing regular medical check-ups, there is the risk that diseases and conditions are not being diagnosed and treated early enough, or at all. With both acute and chronic diseases, the effects are often felt for the rest of a person s life.
Ronald McDonald House Charities Latvija (RMHC Latvija) created the program called Mobile Health Care Center (Care Mobile) to provide regular free medical services for children in Latvia. Our mission is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children of Latvia. We believe that when you change a child s life, you change a family s, which can change a community, and ultimately the world.
We set up this mobile health care center program to make medical services for families with children affordable, and provide regular free primary medical care as well as provide timely appointments with qualified professionals.
