Health plans in Namibia
The Mister Sister program is a public-private partnership which aims to improve access to primary healthcare for remote and underserved populations through monthly visits by mobile clinics.
Services include HIV testing and counselling as well as tuberculosis testing. PharmAccess Namibia, an implementing partner of the Health Insurance Fund, also aims to optimally utilize the waiting time by offering health education. As such, the staff of the mobile clinics enhances the knowledge level of patients on topics such as hygiene, maternal health, infant health, family planning and non-communicable diseases.
The partnership is managed by PharmAccess Foundation Namibia, in collaboration with the Namibian Ministry of Health & Social Services and a number of public and private partners and supporters who all contribute to make the services possible.
