Description : 50 years of conflict have prevented medical practitioners from treating civilian populations in many parts of Colombia, especially villagers in remote, difficult-to-reach areas. Responding to this problem, the ICRC has operated mobile health units in four areas since 1996. This video follows the ICRC mobile health team as it travels by river to provide curative and preventive care to villagers. It illustrates how many primary health care objectives are being met in war-torn Colombia. Under the ICRC protective emblem the team provides dental care, immunizations, health education and hygiene and water information to people who do not have access to health services.
