The Ebola outbreak in West Africa provided a stark reminder that the lack of basic healthcare and disease surveillance systems in remote communities is both a local injustice and a global threat.

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.

The Ebola outbreak challenged us in ways that we never expected, but it also revealed the power of community health workers and strengthened our resolve to ensure that everyone everywhere has access to healthcare. Thank you for joining us to invest in a healthier future for ALL.
