WHAT ARE WINGS' MOBILE CLINICS?

Guatemalan women face a multitude of barriers when it comes to accessing reproductive health services. WINGS mobile clinics are breaking down those barriers by traveling to remote, underserved communities and offering a range of contraceptives as well as cervical cancer screening to women in need.

Watch the video below to learn about a typical day in the life of WINGS’ Mobile Clinic!

WHY ARE OUR MOBILE CLINICS NEEDED IN GUATEMALA?

HOW WE DO IT

Our two mobile units travel throughout the country hosting one and two-day mobile clinics. Each unit is made up of a driver, 3-4 nurses, and all the necessary supplies and equipment to conduct a medical clinic. On average, each mobile unit spends 18 days per month hosting clinics.

By going mobile, we are able to reach some of the most remote communities. We bring our services to those hard to reach places, eliminating common barriers to accessing service, such as cost of transportation and lack of nearby health facilities.

As language is often a barrier, Guatemala is home to over 22 languages, our staff speak several of the most common Mayan languages and can provide information to and answer questions even for those who don’t speak Spanish.

THE IMPACT OF YOUR DONATION

Your donation will help fund WINGS’ two mobile units during 2017. Our goal next year is to bring our services to roughly 7,000 Guatemalan women, men, and youth through 300 mobile clinics in 13 departments of Guatemala. You can make that happen!
