Beating Malaria
Transaid

In remote areas of Africa, malaria is often not diagnosed quickly enough and in some cases can kill a young patient in less than 24 hours. Rapid response to the disease is the key to saving lives. The drug artesunate, which slows the rate the disease affects a patient, is now offered as a suppository that can be administered by a health care worker. Through the use of bike ambulances, patients can then be transported to hospitals faster for further treatment.

Gerardo received our 100,000th bike donated in 2014. Find out how it has changed his life below.
