Registered author(s):

    Providing Primary Health Care (PHC) in developing countries is very troublesome. The dilemma of having enough facilities to be geographically accessible, yet few enough of them to be properly stocked and staffed is a major stumbling block. Accissibility problems are exacerbated by extensive rainy seasons in which travel is possible only on paved roads. We investigate the ability of using mobile facilities to resolve this dilemma in Suhum District, Ghana.
