Ashoka Fellow
United Kingdom
Fellow Since 2014
This description of Andrea Coleman's work was prepared when Andrea Coleman was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
For over twenty years, Andrea Coleman has focused on solving a seemingly simple, key component of rural healthcare delivery: on-the-ground transportation. Through a series of partnerships with government institutions, Andrea has designed new ways of bringing health workers to where patients are, built local expertise and supply chains for transport and maintenance, and dramatically improved healthcare reliability. Her work is driving transport up the government agenda in Africa and beyond, removing a crucial barrier for effective development as a whole.
