Two Wheels for Life supports programmes that ensure health care reaches some of the poorest and most remote communities in Lesotho, Malawi, Nigeria and The Gambia. Working with partner organisation Riders for Health, Two Wheels’ local-led and managed programmes focus on transport for health workers, addressing an essential but sometimes neglected aspect of healthcare in remote and hard-to-access communities.
Health workers immunise newborns, diagnose disease, educate in nutrition for children, provide preventative measures to combat disease and help for women in labour. These services must reach the most remote parts of each community, where they are desperately needed. To do this, reliable transport is vital.
In many parts of Lesotho, Malawi, Nigeria and The Gambia, the terrain is difficult and transport is haphazard. Vehicles break down, clinics don't get run, tests are delayed, women with complications give birth unaided. And the consequences can be deadly.
Motorcycles save lives
The programmes we support ensure that health workers are able to use motorcycles and other vehicles that are appropriate for the terrain. They are trained to ride and maintain their vehicles regularly, and given access to the fuel and clothing they need to do their jobs reliably and safely.
