Mobile Medical Units (MMUs) Started To Provide Healthcare Facilities In Rural Odisha

Union Minister  for Petroleum and Natural Gas  Mr Dharmendra Pradhan flagged off eleven Mobile Medical Units (MMUs) in Odisha’s Bhubaneswar, with an aim to provide healthcare in rural pockets.

MMUs will travel across villages in the state providing free primary healthcare services. Each MMU will have a qualified doctor, nurse, laboratory technician, pharmacist, essential medicines and diagnostic kit.

Six of these MMUs, which are specially equipped vehicles, have been supported by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd, four by GAIL (India) Limited and one by Oil and Natural Gas Ltd. (ONGC) as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

The project is designed to cover villages in a range of 25 to 40 kms from its base location. One MMU can cover 4 to 5 villages in a day on a regular basis.
