First Stop as the Mobile Medical Units Continue their Visits throughout Greece: Amorgos
01 March 2021

After a temporary pause in their schedule of regular visits to remote areas in Greece due to the pandemic, the Mobile Medical Units (MMU) are setting sail once again, this time for the island of Amorgos.

Doctors of different specialties, including cardiology, ophthalmology, and pediatrics, will meet the island’s inhabitants from March 5 to 7, 2021, to offer them free medical examinations and check up on their health.

Since the launch of the program in January 2014, the MMUs have completed a total of 83 missions to remote areas of Greece. The aim of the program is to ensure equal access to high-quality health services for all residents of the country. The MMU initiative was established by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and is carried out, with exclusive support from SNF, by the nonprofit Regeneration & Progress, in collaboration with Health Units SA, under the scientific supervision of the 1st Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Athens University Medical School.
