The emergence of the COVID19 pandemic has shocked the world’s health systems, is testing its economic strength like no other time since the Great Depression and changing ways of life across the world on an unprecedented scale.
In the era of COVID19, it is more important than ever that innovative, ‘bottom-up’ solutions to the many challenges the pandemic causes, are identified, equipped and scaled to have the most amount of impact possible during challenging and unprecedented times. “Flattening the curve” on a global scale is critical, but so is the broader response and recovery from this generational event.
Safewheel provides affordable ambulance and doorstep emergency medical services to rural populations in Bangladesh, with three-wheel mini ambulances that can operate on the narrowest village roads – a place where traditional ambulances cannot traverse. Safewheel is Bangladesh’s first ambulance service dedicated to rural people only, providing medical access to populations who have little to no access to medical services or transportation.
In response to the COVID19 pandemic, Safewheel proposes to utilise its business operations to address a brewing COVID19 crisis in Bangladesh.
We would love to hear from you.
