Modular Health Care (MHC) : A Health Facility for Remote or Inaccessible Areas:

WM Creative Studio Re-Lab were among the first cohorts of Karachi University Business Incubation Center(KUBIC). According to The Lancet ranking, Pakistan is on 154th number when it comes to providing adequate health care facility to the population at large. Unfortunately, the country currently spends only 3% of GDP on health facilities. Such situations require immediate, affordable and easy solutions. The Re-Lab presented a start-up idea to make health care accessible to every region of the country through a Mobile Modular Health-Care Unit.




According to the World Bank report 2017, Pakistan is one of the most disaster-prone countries in South Asia. As per the report, each year nearly 3 million people suffer due to natural or man-made disasters (Khan, 2017). This alarming situation requires fast measures to be taken, in order to alleviate the sufferings of the people. One of the most requisite needs is to cater to the emergency health needs of the people. According to WHO, Pakistan is rated ≥ 66% Acceptable in their tool kit indicator which is utilized for assessing the health-system crisis management capacity. HealthCare Technology, medical facilities, storage and vaccine availability fall under “inadequate availability” or “partial availability” (Ul Haq, et al., 2019). Such a dire situation calls for immediate measures that are efficient, quick and cater to people at large. Modular Health Care, with basic amenities (power generator, water tank, portable toilet) is just that solution. Easily transportable, the health care unit can be transported through road or by air. Easy to assemble, it comes with a drawing booklet, ensuring everyone can assemble or disassemble it. Apart from storage and toilet, the structure can expand to upto 10’, making it easier to set up a full-fledged operation theater, with enough space for the doctor’s walkability and access to equipment. Independent power generation and water collection means ensuring clean, environmentally friendly energy and access to clean water. The fact that the MHC comes with its own generator makes it self-sufficient; in case the power lines disrupt due to catastrophes, the generator ensures unperturbed operability.


Current Status: The design is in design development phase.
