In some mountainous regions, women face growing inequalities in access to maternity care. In Auvergne (France), 220 municipalities are located 30 minutes or more from the nearest health care structure.
The “Opti’soins” initiative was launched in September 2022 to address these inequalities and better identify the need for mobile care. 110 pregnant women in 4 mountain areas benefit from this new medical assistance. The initiative brings services closer to the inhabitants of the most remote and least well-served areas and will provide a further key to understanding of the needs for mobile care services.
