Launch Day: Health Services

eRanger2This past summer, a group of SAFE’s international interns worked to launch a new eRanger motorcycle ambulance program. The Launch Day celebration brought together some of the most compelling aspects of SAFE’s work. Over the next two weeks, we’ll be doing a series of posts about those efforts. Enjoy!

SAFE, along with its community partners, offered various health services at the Launch Day celebration, including maternal and pediatric immunizations, prenatal care and general medical consults. This highlights the way SAFE uses its projects for multiple purposes. In this instance, knowing the launch would draw a crowd of almost a thousand people, it was important to ensure the health facility was prepared to provide preventive and proactive medical treatment. Literally hundreds of people were able to be treated as a result!
