Riders for Health partners with Stanford business school

Over the past two decades, British nonprofit Riders for Health has been working to reduce the number of deaths in Africa from treatable diseases by providing a fleet of reliable vehicles to transport supplies and and medical professionals across Gambia, Kenya, Lesotho, Nigeria, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. The organization also trains the drivers that make the supply runs.

Riders for Health recently forged a partnership with Stanford University's Graduate School of Business and launched a five-year project to document the effectiveness of the model. The study is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Riders for Health hopes the study will help foster similar programs in other countries.
