East Africa: Health Care that Moves

By Admin, December 18, 2012


Imagine being ‘at work’, 24 hours a day, 26 days each month. While this thought would bring even the most enthusiastic workaholics to their knees, this is, in fact, a reality for truck drivers and transport workers across Africa and around the world. Couple this reality with limited access to health care and near constant mobility and the results prove devastating. Without proper access to quality health care, curable illness goes untreated and infectious diseases are able to spread across enormous distances. The result: the health of transport communities suffer, their direct and indirect contacts suffer, and businesses, that depend on a safe and healthy supply-chains, suffer.
