Namibia produces bicycle-pulled ambulances for use by HIV/AIDS Home Based Care (HBC) workers, HIV/AIDS self help projects, communities, clinics, and hospitals in rural Namibia. BEN Namibia’s work delivering bicycles to home-based care volunteers in the North has
demonstrated that there is an enormous need for emergency transport solutions for the care of people living with HIV/AIDS. In other African countries where bicycle ambulances are in use, there have been increases in access to health care and marked declines in infant and maternal mortality rates. Because the ambulances are used through HIV/AIDS HBC networks, a high percentage of HIV/AIDS-related transports is anticipated. BEN Namibia is addressing the need for data on the transport of HIV/AIDS patients.
