All of the proceeds from the helmets benefit the organization, which has used motorcycles to mobilize health workers in seven African countries since 1989.

Among the many serious problems in rural Africa is the almost total failure of ordinary mechanical transport due to hard-to-access roads. Riders for Health works tirelessly to combat that issue and increase access to vaccinations, emergency services, and medicine, all of which helps fight the spread of AIDS.
