Last Mile Health CEO Dr. Raj Panjabi, MD, MPH was recently featured on the television news program PBS NewsHour reflecting on the outbreak and the lessons we learned through our efforts to support response and recovery in Liberia’s remote communities. In the following interview with host Judy Woodruff, Raj shared his thoughts on the role that community health workers can play in preventing the next pandemic and the importance of investing in health systems that reach the last mile.
