Providing a mobility solution in the form of a two-wheeler to a village-level health worker is a probable answer to complex public health problems
Simple mobility solutions at the village level can save many lives. In the scorching heat, struggling with an ice box with children’s vaccines in one hand, bulky registers in the other and a big purse with her daily requisites, Meena, an auxiliary nurse midwife (ANM) from Banda village in Rajasthan, is waiting for the public bus. If she misses the bus, which comes every four hours, lives would be at stake. It is the Village Health and Nutrition Day (VHND) and people—women with newborn babies, pregnant women, the old and the infirm—would be queuing up for vaccination and medical treatment. The only other option for her is to either ask a family member for a ride or walk 5km through muddy and broken pathways.
