Riders for Health (Riders) improves access to health care for rural populations by providing transportation services – including vehicle management, training and support services – to national governments and health care delivery organizations in Africa. Riders enables the existing health care system to be more effective by managing and maintaining a transport network of motorcycles and vehicles, which links the different elements of the health care system together. Certified instructors combine theoretical and practical training to deliver courses at all levels of expertise, specializing in training health workers who utilize vehicles to reach communities, particularly over rough roads and difficult terrain. Workers are trained not only to ride, but also to perform their own maintenance and basic repairs, and to adhere to rigorous safety standards. By equipping these riders with a motorcycle and providing appropriate training and maintenance, health workers are able to increase coverage and enhance health care accessibility to their respective populations. Riders provides additional support services, including supply chain distribution, diagnostic sample transport, and medical emergency transportation.
