On Saturday we were supported by MOTOAID, an Australian NGO who fund raise for motorcycles in the health development setting, the 4 TB Programme Out-reach Health Care workers together with a couple of other staff from HIV and Finance, who often use their personal bikes for work errands, were joined by our colleagues from HIAM Health.

Issues covered included a pre riding safety check, appropriate clothing and foot wear, safety observations, then some practical experience of safer stopping and skid control.


Ms Fi (Marlow) from MOTO AID then returned Monday morning, and assisted in developing templates for monitoring, servicing and fuel consumption and Mr Pete, showed two of our staff team how to change a wheel and assisted staff in giving a service to the old bike used by our Assistant TB Nurse who travels between BPC and another centre, to assist TB inpatients and deliver medicines and collect health information from the other site.

At the end of the session the staff were all issued with a high visability vest, but having seen and tried on the modern light weight, yet reinforced protective jackets used by the trainers, they all now have their sites set on them.
