The Gambia

With Riders help, The Gambia became the first African country to offer countrywide health coverage.

The Gambia Map LargeRiders’ partnership with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in 1999 made The Gambia the first country in Africa to offer countrywide health coverage.

We have built vehicle maintenance units across the whole country, creating a network that means technicians can provide outreach servicing for health workers’ vehicles wherever they operate.
