The Ministry of Health said it will be opening mobile clinics to service areas where medical facilities are no longer in operation.
Health Minister Ronnie Skelton made the announcement at a public meeting in Cane Garden Bay recently.
He said the September 2017 hurricanes massively impacted clinics across the British Virgin Islands.
Minister Skelter further said a number of organisations such as the Pan American Health Organisation are assisting to repair the lesser-damaged facilities in the territory.
For instance, the internationally-based Kenny Chesney Foundation is donating medical equipment and labour to refurbish and repair the medical clinic on the island of Jost Van Dyke.
“All the other clinics in the various areas both here (on Tortola), in Virgin Gorda, and Anegada are being repaired,” Skelton said.
“We are trying to get some mobile clinics to go around the country in places where we don’t have the clinics in operation. They will be used as clinics,” he added.
