Riders for Health began nationwide operations in Lesotho mobilising outreach health workers on motorcycles. This initial programme showcased Riders’ unique offering of managing and maintaining a fleet of vehicles used in health care delivery.
In Kenya, Riders for Health has offices in Nairobi and Kisumu. From our workshop in Kisumu, we currently offer fleet management services in western and central Kenya on an outreach basis and we’re looking to expand to new locations.
Riders for Health currently manages 18 vehicles for Partners In Health (PIH) in the Neno district. With 10 motorcycles and eight four-wheeled vehicles managed by Riders, PIH provides HIV treatment and health care in communities across the district.
Riders for Health runs workshops in Nigeria, partnering with local and international agencies to maintain their vehicles. We have recently started a pilot partnership to manage last-mile distribution of drugs direct from the regional medical store to health facilities in two states.
In The Gambia, Riders for Health manages the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare’s (MoHSW) national fleet of health care vehicles using our innovative full-service leasing model. This means that The Gambia is the first country in Africa to be equipped with complete transportation coverage for its health service. For the first time, health workers are able to reach every village ensuring basic health care is delivered to even the most rural communities.
In Zambia, Riders for Health currently offers fleet management services in both Eastern and Southern Provinces through our offices and workshops in Chipata and Livingstone, respectively.
Riders for Health is currently working with the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare (MoHCW) and other health partners in Zimbabwe to re-scale our operations across the country since the economic crisis and to identify new areas of need.
