In Ghana, as in other developing nations, people die needlessly from preventable and treatable diseases. This is partially due to the lack of adequate health care facilities in rural and urban areas. Simple, inexpensive and accessible treatment would dramatically reduce needless deaths in many parts of the developing world. Primary Mobile Med International's goal is to become part of the solution to the health care crisis by providing a safe and effective place for health care professionals to deliver much needed care.
