Populations in many third world countries are quite dispersed, and building hospitals is an expensive and time consuming proposition.
Even if hospitals were built in the main towns and cities, how would those living in more rural areas reach them? Third world countries lack the transport infrastructures that we’re used to, and those in isolated villages are often the ones in the most desperate need. That’s where aid initiatives such as field hospitals and sanitation projects come in.
The trailer manufacturers that serve the military are able to produce some rugged, reliable, and powerful vehicles that are capable of reaching even the most remote villages in developing countries. Once the field hospital has been deployed, it can run as long as it has a good fuel and water supply. In areas affected by natural disasters, field hospitals can stay in operation for months at a time, staffed round the clock by aid workers and volunteers.
