Moving Health is a nonprofit focused on redefining emergency transportation for last mile areas. We work with communities to design and locally manufacture ambulances that actually work in remote, hard to reach areas. We started with a goal to find a safer way for pregnant women to get to the hospital all over the world, and now we’ve expanded that with our mission to connect families to healthcare, when they need it most. Over the past 7 years, we have worked in East and West Africa - focusing now on our expansion efforts in Ghana. We are moving out of a pilot, proof of concept phase and into a phase of growth.
