Project Details

Jamaica Maternal Ambulances


Project Description

A contract funded through the European Union for the supply of six ambulances for the Ministry of Health in Jamaica.

Project Overview

Based on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis, the vehicles were transported to a specialist ambulance converter in Turkey where they were fitted with all the equipment required by the project. When inspections were complete and the project’s chosen livery was applied to the exterior of the vehicles, they were shipped through to Kingston.

Upon arrival in Jamaica a training course was provided for health workers in both a practical and classroom based setting. The ambulance units will be used to transport expectant mothers between health centres and hospitals in cases of emergencies.
