Final report

With your support, health workers in Zambia mobilized by Riders for Health-managed motorcycles travel over 1,000 kilometers each month to reach communities with care.  Thanks to you and supporters including the Bill & Melinda gates Foundation, we were able to recently expand our program in Zambia into the Southern Province of the country, mobilizing over 70 health care professionals and providing better access to health care for thousands of people. 

As a key part of this investment, Riders for Health has developed a partnership with Stanford University to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of reliable transportation in the delivery of care.  The program began in August of 2011 and data collection is set continue into 2014.  Please stay tuned for more ways you can help between now and then, in Zambia, and in other parts of Africa.

Together, we are moving global health forward.
