Lack of transport is one of the greatest barriers to delivering health care in remote parts of Africa, causing NGOs and local governments to abandon projects prematurely. Former motorbike racer Andrea Coleman and her husband Barry founded Riders for Health in 1996 to provide practical solutions to the continent's transportation problems. They created a maintenance system for bicycles, cars, ambulances, and trucks that has virtually eliminated breakdowns. Now they face a new challenge from host Alvin Hall: to set up a medical transport network in rural Zambia in just six months. This program depicts their efforts to clear the logistical, legal, political, and business hurdles.
