Implement of "Mobile Health Care Room" Program

Hyogo launched the "Mobile Health Care Room"program as an initiative designed for having nurses and health care workers visit the disaster-affected area to deliver health consultation services.[2001 started]

These activities aim at preventing the shut-in of disaster victims in response to the changing living environment after the earthquake and to provide opportunities for the program implementers to consult with disaster victims about their concerns with living alone and anxieties.
