2012-2015 “An Emergency Transport Scheme in Rural/Peri-Urban Uganda that Utilises Informal Transport Services

This technical case study outlines Transaid’s involvement in a 4 year programme called MSD for Ugandan Mothers (MUM). The MUM programme works with franchised, private health facilities, local businesses, and communities to expand women’s access to affordable, quality maternal healthcare. Transaid worked as part of the MUM programme to improve the understanding around the transport related constraints to women accessing maternal healthcare and to design and implement an intervention to improve access.
