Pedal power takes medicine to rural villages

Pedal power takes medicine to rural villages

The Ministry of Health and Social Services with the support of UNICEF received 100 bicycles, with 100 more in the pipeline for its health extension workers, from the Pupkewitz Foundation. Health workers face an uphill task to keep track and deliver medicines in remote rural areas, affecting health service delivery to most communities. On Thursday the Deputy Health Minister, Hon Juliet Kavetuna (third from left) received the bicycles from the Pupkewitz Foundation chairperson, Merle Barry (centre right) at a ceremony in Windhoek. Helping to hold the bicycles are the UNICEF Deputy Country Representative, Marcus Betts and the Permanent Secretary in the health ministry, Petronella Masabane next to Pupkewitz Group CEO Dougie Truter with the health extension staff members in blue T shirts.
