The isolated regions of Chhattisgarh are one such place where this problem is prevalent. Not only is there a lack of medical centres, but the harsh forested terrains make it difficult to transport people in urgent need of medical care to those who can provide it.
Pregnant women, especially, suffer due to this and that is exactly what these bike ambulance are out to rectify. The bike ambulance is a modification of a conventional motorbike that is attached with a side-carriage for ferrying patients.
As of now there is only one motorcycle-ambulance in the entire state which serves the pregnant women and other serious patients in whole of Bastar division.
