Andrea Coleman, Riders for Health, United Kingdom

Riders for Health works with health ministries and NGOs in Africa to maintain and manage more than 1,000 motorcycles and other vehicles. This enables healthcare workers to service remote areas. Riders’ innovative transport systems incorporate skills training for driving, daily maintenance procedures, fuelling supply-chain logistics for replacement parts, and interval preventative maintenance. The organization emphasizes building local capacity to manage and maintain its vehicles. A conservative estimate shows 11 million people receive regular, reliable healthcare because of Riders for Health.
