There are a number of hospitals but the major referral hospital is in the capital, Banjul, more than a six hour drive from the furthest reaches of the country. With the introduction of Rider’s services, for the first time in the nation’s history, health workers were able to reach every village ensuring basic health care was delivered to even the most rural communities. Since then Riders have run the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare’s (MoHSW) national fleet of health care vehicles using our innovative full-service leasing model.
Each of The Gambia’s public health centres now has an ambulance or trekking vehicle. Ambulances are used for emergency referrals while trekking vehicles support the delivery of staff to outreach clinics and regional activities like immunisation campaigns.
Our countrywide network
We have built vehicle maintenance units across The Gambia. Our main office and maintenance centre, central parts stores and training centre are located in Kanifing just outside the capital, Banjul.
Because of this network, technicians can provide outreach servicing for health workers’ vehicles wherever they operate.
We support outreach health care across The Gambia with our nationwide fleet of motorcycles. Our infrastructure enables the delivery of key health interventions to any location in the country, no matter how remote.
