On August 15th, 2009, a health fair took place in Quelimane, Mozambique, for the first time to help educate people about their health.

Friends in Global Health

, affiliated with Vanderbilt University, debuted the RMF Mobile Clinic at the fair as an opportunity to witness its capabilities. It was the first time that the Mobile Clinic has been used and at the end of the day nearly 500 people had passed through its doors.

As for the results of those treated: of 463 people only 77 had high blood pressure; of 95 tested for HIV, only 13 were HIV positive; 305 people were given information about breast cancer awareness and prevention.
