Health worker mobilized by Riders, Kunaka Hospital
Riders for Health has been working in Zimbabwe with the Ministry of Health since 1998. Before Riders, outreach workers spent an average of only 2 days a week in the community, despite being responsible for reaching up to 100 villages. Mobilized by Riders, the outreach workers can spend four days a week doing their work. Zimbabwe is also one of the areas where Riders operates trekking vehicles, which ensure that women are referred to hospitals safely and quickly when complications occur.
Recently, we have been focused on recovering from Zimbabwe's economic crisis, re-scaling operations and re-mobilizing health workers throughout the country.
