Nomad health: healthcare for mobile pastoralists
Since 1978, access to primary healthcare has been broadly considered a fundamental human right. Mobile pastoralists, however, are still one of the least covered groups.
Due to their mobile way of life, environmental dangers, or social threats it is not easy for mobile pastoralists to get medical care. The involved issues are complex. As Jakob Zinsstag explains in this video, we may only grapple with this complexity if we use transdisciplinary approaches.
Trying to comprehend the system and using participatory methods might sometimes be demanding. But it is the only way that might lead to solutions, and thus to better health coverage for mobile pastoralists.
This video introduces the case of combined healthcare systems. Can you think of the problems or possible solutions that came up in this research? Write down your ideas.
