Promoting healthcare through the organization of medical caravans
TAQA Morocco has partnered with the Sheikh Zaid Ibn Soltan Foundation to provide free quality health care to the most disadvantaged populations, often located in remote rural areas.
Medical caravans are regularly provided by a mobile Multidisciplinary Medical Unit involving medical and paramedical teams from Sheikh Zaid Hospital (doctors, nurses and volunteers). It is a genuine mobile multidisciplinary diagnostic center with an ophthalmology unit that travels to remote areas. In 2021, due to the restrictions on gathering due to the Covid-19 pandemic, only one caravan could be organized. It benefited 1,146 people and provided 500 eye consultations, 173 cataract operations, 300 explorations and 1,733 pharmacy vouchers.
