Delivering care by motorcycle

Here's an inspiring story about the origins of Riders for Health, an organization committed to providing health care workers in remote areas with off-road motorcycles and the skills to maintain them. In ways, Enduro Africa seeks to emulate aspects of Riders for Health.
"It must be the only intervention that actually saves money," says [Riders cofounder] Andrea Coleman. "One health care worker with a motorcycle can have a profound effect on 20,000 people."

This segment on Riders for Health's
transportation program in The Gambia highlights the use of motorcycles to help provide reliable transportation to clinics and hospitals.
