RDT therefore operates rural and mobile clinics in regions lacking good medical facilities to provide basic healthcare and refer patients to hospitals if necessary.

Rural and mobile clinics provide primary healthcare to rural people in remote areas.

There are currently seven full time rural clinics, coordinated directly by RDT Hospitals, four school health clinics, running for half a day, and two mobile clinics, which function during the morning and evening hours.

School health clinics and mobile clinics are run by doctors with the help of Health Organisers trained by RDT and auxiliary nurse midwives.
