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.

We employ only Gambian nationals and are a creator of  reliable, secure employment in a nation with low employment. Currently our staff of 303 covers includes roles in leadership, administration, driving, supply-chain management and vehicle maintenance.

Operating since 1999

Riders for Health The Gambia has been delivering health services to the population for more than two decades.
