Activities

  • To provide motorcycles for health workers, specifically midwives and nurses working in public health centres that are responsible for large areas but which have no means of transport to cover these areas. The aim is to provide easier access to health services for those in rural areas, particularly those having very limited access to transport. The use of motorcycles is monitored by Health for All and others such as community leaders, the Ministry for Health in sub-district levels, Non-Governmental Organisations and the public.
  • To manage and control the roadworthiness of the motorcycle fleet. This is to ensure that a Zero Breakdown principle is maintained. This is carried out by monitoring the condition of the motorcycles regularly. The health workers responsible for the motorcycles fill in a logbook and the riders themselves are regularly evaluated.
  • To conduct regular field monitoring to ensure the proper use of the motorcycles.
  • To carry out repairs whenever damage occurs.
  • To supply spare parts. To do this Health for All uses parts from its own tock and is refunded by the Health centre or rider.
  • To train health workers to ride motorcycles. This training is specifically designed to enable healthworkers to ride properly and safely in local conditions and ensures that they can maintain the Zero Breakdown programme.
  • To organise seminars and group discussions on health issues such as reproductive health, nutrition, STDs, HIV/AIDS, etc. Such discussions are open to the general public and aimed particuarly at women’s groups.
  • Training on Health in the perspective of Gender and Human Rights. Health workers participate in this training with the purpose of widening their horizons with regard to the importance of looking at health in the perspective of gender and human rights.
  • To network and to collaborate with Government in order to work more effectvely in partnership, to ensure clear understanding of the issues and mutual support by all parties.
