Through education and better health, we intend to break the cycle of poverty, uplifting living conditions for industrial workers and slum dwellers. By making small improvements in their dietary practices, –by providing iron supplements and furnishing menstrual hygiene education - Health on Wheels is making sustainable improvements in the lives of garment workers. 

    Health on Wheels uses onsite healthcare workers,sophisticated cell phone-based m-Health  and electronic medical record (EMR) software to coordinate screening test results, diagnosis, and treatment regime with our physicians. All patient and employer records are kept strictly confidential and secure. Hundreds of workers are seen each month, with regular follow up appointments scheduled as necessary to improve their physical and mental health and sustain well-being.

    Health on Wheels is working to establish an atmosphere where workers feel comfortable and healthy, helping to  build trust and good relationships between the employer and the employees. A healthy work force will ensure improved productivity and reduced employee turnover.
