Providing access to healthcare is an enormous barrier when it comes to breaking the cycle of poverty in developing countries, which is why a mobile health center can create tangible change. After running a design competition to optimize mobility, UK based non-profit organization Building Trust International is making a difference in South Asia.

The 164 foot mobile health center is a recycled shipping container in Cambodia and provides quality health care to the local communities. The doctor's clinic includes two small examination rooms, storage space, a kitchen and bathroom, as well as one big treatment room. The medical center also has a large porch with ramp access and acts as an education and community hub in addition to providing healthcare services.
