In 2010, PharmAccess Namibia launched the Mister Sister Mobile Health Services, an innovative program created to provide primary healthcare to community employees and their families living in rural and remote areas of Namibia.
What began as a pilot program in 2009, has grown into a full fledged rural health service delivering primary healthcare to over one thousand Namibians per month.
Mister Sister uses a unique mixed funding model to leverage both public and private sector resources in cover the costs of delivering services. The government, who would otherwise provide treatment to the same patients at health centers, supply the necessary drugs and vaccines used by the clinic. Commercials farms and other local businesses are contracted and pay a monthly fee to cover some of the costs of bringing healthcare to their employees.
