More Info

Evidence that wearing a helmet significantly improves the chances of surviving an accident is overwhelming.

In low-income countries, motorcycles are a path to overcoming existing mobility gaps. Public transport is often underdeveloped and/or unsafe. As a result, people dedicate their limited resources to procuring new or used motorcycles, which commonly serve as the mobility solution for the whole family and essential to meeting their basic socio-economic needs. Unfortunately, helmets are quite often left out of the equation due to on the one hand their prices, while on the other to the simple lack of additional funds.
