Programs

For over 20 years, Riders for Health have focused on providing reliable, cost-effective and practical transport services for health-focused organisations across sub-Saharan Africa. This helps our partners to make sure health care delivery is uninterrupted and reaches the people that need it. Riders for Health's expertise lies in managing vehicles for our partners - whether the vehicles are used to mobilise outreach health workers on motorcycles, transport samples and supplies to health centres, or are ambulances for emergency referrals. Our experience working in some of the world's most remote areas is unrivalled. Whatever our partner's need, our commitment is to design a customised transport solution at a sustainable cost. http://www.riders.org/what-we-do/our-services
