The Elephant Ambulance Service

Government Primary Health Centers in remote locations are often understaffed and ill equipped. The doctors on the front lines of health face immense challenges to provide the care their patients need and to link them with higher level care when needed. Diagnostic equipment is virtually unheard of at these locations and patients must travel hours for simple blood tests and X-rays. The Elephant is a mini bus which transports groups of non-critical patients for higher level care and diagnostics in the city. This service lowers transport costs for patients (transporting multiple patients at once) and provides a reliable and comfortable access to secondary and tertiary facilities.
