Heroes of Peace is committed to building and operating Mobile Health Care facilities in remote areas affected by conflict. Our mobile clinics are used for consultations and referrals, as well as non-intensive treatments. These clinics offer immediate health care for those in need, and for preventative care.

Malaria and Tuberculosis are among the deadliest diseases in these territories. To lessen the impact of these diseases, Heroes of Peace is organizing the donation of mosquito nets to prevent malaria and campaigning for vaccinations for children, alongside awareness campaigns on infection prevention.

Heroes of Peace will also be providing training to medical cadres from health centres in rural areas, launching radio campaigns to educate the public on current health epidemics as well as endemic illnesses, training groups of youth to educate peers on viral diseases and epidemic transmission, and providing schools with seminars to fight malnutrition.
