Weighing babies - The Gambia

The Gambia


In 2002 Ministry of Health and Social Welfare  outsourced all their health care fleet management to us. They use our systems to provide a comprehensive services including outreach care in villages and schools, collection and distribution of drugs, vaccine and other supplies and surveillance and containment of infectious diseases. This partnership has been a huge success. Knowing that their transport is is reliable means they can focus on achieving health goals.


In The Gambia, for almost 10 years, no pregnant woman – not one – has been lost because she failed to be delivered to an appropriate health facility.
