Community Health Clinic

The amphibious community health clinic is a structure designed to sustain itself amid flood conditions. With the ability to float, this structure is stable both on ground and on water.

The floating clinic is especially suitable in aquatic areas like rivers, bays and tidal flats where flooding, storms and large tidal fluctuations occur.

The clinic is a rapidly deployable, modular pre-fabricated structure, built using local materials.

The concept allows for integration of important environmental plug-ins like dry composting toilets, rainwater catchment and purification systems and solar pv panels.

In 2009 Hope Builds constructed our first amphibious community health clinic in Makoko, an informal settlement of over 150,000, located in Lagos, Nigeria.

On the first day volunteer doctors performed 20 surgeries and over 80 in the following days-all free of charge to the local residents.

We hope this clinic will be a prototype for future low-cost mobile health centers.
