Vuka Muleya is a volunteer motorbike ambulance driver for the Kafue Mission Rural Health Centre in Southern Zambia. Thanks to his efforts, particularly for pregnant women in the community, the lives of women and children are being saved through improved access to local government health services. The local health centre now has a new maternity ward, and has been fully equipped and refurbished through EU-funding under the Millennium Development Goal initiative (MDGi), which aims to accelerate the reduction of maternal, neonatal and child mortality in Zambia. The programme is implemented by the Ministry of Health with technical support from UNICEF Zambia and UNFPA.
