On May 6 we successfully brought together 11 mobile health vehicles from 10 different organisations to the forecourt of Parliament to display a range of specialised health vehicles. The purpose of this display was to highlight the expanding range of services offered by providers through these mobile health vehicles. This approach is increasingly used to ensure equitable access to health services.

Among the units on display were Breast Screening Aotearoa, mobile dental, mobile artificial limb clinic, primary care vehicles, Stroke Foundation, as well as our three specialised vehicles, mobile surgical, mobile lithotripsy (kidney stone) and the new mobile PET-CT unit.

The exhibition served as a prelude to Rural Fest, an annual event organised by Hauora Taiwhenua. Rural Fest identifies critical changes needed to improve health and wellbeing in rural communities and conveys those messages to Parliament, including Ministers and Members of Parliament.
