In this programme health workers are equipped with a bicycle, and isolated communities are equipped with bicycles plus bicycle ambulance trailers. The health workers use the bicycle for door-to-door health checks and counselling. The bicycle ambulances are used for emergency visits for better access to health centres. Via this programme the capacity of health workers to visit more patients is improved by the increase of the capture area and speed. The programme also provides a fast and efficient first aid emergency transport system.
