Introduction of the Mobile Health Team

Since March 2017 the Evangelische Waldkrankenhaus Spandau together with the borough of Spandau, has been running the project "Mobile Health Team - Promoting equal opportunities for children with a refugee background to grow up heathily".

Please contact us if you have questions!

The aim of the project is the long-term integration of families with children under 12 years as well as pregnant women into the local health structures. If supporting structures are missing, the team organizes help.
