Our technology was used to install a three-room clinic in a shipping container to provide quality healthcare in remote locations.
Arizona State University researchers and our construction partner in Phoenix, US, digg, collaborated on creating this mini medical clinic to help make healthcare more accessible in northern Uganda.
The project, funded by the Office of Naval Research, used DIRTT solutions to transform a 40-foot shipping container into a fully functional, self-powered mini healthcare facility complete with a water purification system and solar power. This self-sustaining clinic will service a camp of over 12,000 people.
Currently, the Ayilo II Refugee Settlement in Uganda faced major barriers when providing reliable care related to public health, disaster relief, humanitarian aid, and military operations.
This is largely in part to having no direct supply to clean water and unreliable power sources. This clinic will greatly increase the region's capacity to provide proper care to those in need. Medical Teams International will be providing the medical services, equipment and supplies, which were shipped to site in the container prior to its refit.
