1. We go the distance for our patients.

This means that every action we take is to advance access to primary care for patients who need it the most.

2. We do whatever it takes.

From building a supply chain that brings lifesaving drugs to communities that lie deep in the rainforest to designing a mobile data collection tool that works without cell service, we’re breaking down barriers to bring high quality, life-saving primary care to patients living in remote communities.

3. We’re demonstrating impact.

We support more than 300 community health professionals who serve more than 50,000 people across nearly 300 remote communities. Over the past year, Last Mile Health’s community health professionals conducted more than 42,000 patient visits and treated nearly 22,000 cases of malaria, pneumonia, and diarrhea in children under five.

4. We’re scaling up.

We’re working with the Government of Liberia to scale a historic community health workforce program that will create thousands of jobs, extend healthcare to more than one million people living in remote communities, and ensure that Liberia is never again threatened by a major disease outbreak like Ebola.

5. We’re just getting started.

With the support of generous partners like you, we’ve grown from our humble beginnings to become an organization that serves 50,000 patients. Still, we remain small compared to the scope of the challenge we seek to address. Worldwide, more than one billion people still go their entire lives without seeing a health worker because they live too far from healthcare. In short, illness is universal, but access to care is not.

Our story starts here in Liberia, but our vision is global: a health worker for everyone, everywhere, every day.

This preventable disease disproportionately affects children in rural areas, where poor access to healthcare restricts them from accessing basic, life-saving treatment. However, due to concerted efforts to prevent, […]
