The Last Mile Is The Toughest — Delivering Help On Two Wheels
PSFK interviews the CEO and Co-Founder of the international initiative, Riders For Health, that deliver medication and health services to remote areas.
PSFK recently sat down with Andrea Coleman, co-founder and CEO of Riders for Health, to learn more about the organization, their goals, and the key behind their staying power as a force for good. Riders for Health is an organization devoted to the delivery of healthcare and other vital services to those who have traditionally been isolated by distance or terrain.
Many organizations donate drugs and equipment to improve health systems in developing countries, but Riders for Health’s focus is on getting these things to the people that need them most. Currently, the organization manages over 1,300 motorcycles and ambulances in seven countries. The local health workers who use these vehicles are able to reach over 10 million people in isolated communities.
