Saving Women & Children

Containers 2 Clinics saves the lives of women and children by bringing primary health care to their communities.

C2C combines three strategies to provide access to quality, sustainable health care for women and children in low-income countries: 

1)  C2C converts shipping containers into modular, moveable, durable clinics with flexible power sources for low-resource settings;

2)  C2C brings proven, low-cost health care closer to underserved populations through this model.

3)  C2C works closely with members of the local community to define a list of clinical services at lower prices than they currently pay. By making each clinic sustainable, C2C can open more clinics and reach more patients faster than relying solely on philanthropic contributions.

Containers 2 Clinics (C2C) operates fully-equipped primary care clinics, made from retrofitted shipping containers and staffed with local personnel, to treat women and children in the developing world. 

Each clinic provides primary health care, with laboratory, pharmacy and community health education, to reduce the distance the poor have to travel to the closest health facility.

Within 2-3 years’ time, C2C clinics cover their operating costs, resulting in a self-sustaining enterprise that can be managed at the local level.

C2C currently serves patients in Haiti and Namibia and plans to expand in Central America/Caribbean and Southern Africa.
