Title: The Multi-Period Location Routing Problem: A Mobile Clinic Application

Abstract: In this study we present the Multi Period Location Routing Problem (MLRP) formulation and illustrate it with a mobile clinic application. Mobile clinics give healthcare practitioners the ability to provide medical attention to populations that have limited access to healthcare. When conducting mobile clinic operations practitioners have to locate the depots, select the locations at which services will be offer, and design the schedule for the visits. Because medical treatments depend on the order and frequency in which they are administered the problem must be modeled as a multi period problem. The model proposed is tested on real life instances generated with the input of the Premier Urgence Internationale (PUI) and their operations in Iraq.
