These MMUs are all terrain 4×4 customized ambulances which aims to reaching all the hamlets of Mon District for providing basic primary health care, generic medicines, and laboratory services in the rural setup at a subsidized rate.
The Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Hans Foundation – Brig. Shalendra S. Katariya urged the workers to ensure that concerned service reaches the last household of the District.
Out of these 9 MMUs, four will be stationed at Mon Headquarters; two each at Tizit & Aboi; and one at Tobu and will visit all the villages in the District once a month.
Each MMU will have a Qualified Doctor, ANM, Pharmacist, Lab Technician, Social Development Officer, and Driver with a total of 54 employees for all the 9 MMUs who would be managed by the Foundation.
As per DIPR report, these MMUs will be officially flagged off by the Nagaland Chief Minister – Neiphiu Rio on April 6, 2022.
