The Mobile Medical Units is an initiative undertaken by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and is carried out with the exclusive support of the SNF, by the NGO “Regeneration & Progress”, under the scientific supervision of the Olympic Village Polyclinic and the 1st Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of the Athens University Medical School. On each mission in islands and isolated areas in Greece, Mobile Medical Units are accompanied by a medical team specialized in a wide range of disciplines, qualified nursing and technical staff, as well as medical school students, amongst others.
Since the launch of the program in remote regions across Greece, in January 2014, to date, a total of 33 missions in remote islands of Greece have been completed, responding to the fundamental need of all residents of the country for open access to all medical specialties, as well as to specialized medical equipment.
The visit to Tilos will be the 34th mission of the Mobile Medical Units, following the one to the island of Fourni, held between April 19th and April 22nd, 2018.
