All people deserve access to lifesaving healthcare

Worldwide, more than one billion people lack access to healthcare due to distance. Community health workers have the power to change this by bringing lifesaving care to the doorsteps of those living at the last mile.

Our story begins in the remote communities of Liberia’s rainforest, and our vision is global: a health worker for everyone, everywhere, every day.
