About the Organization

At Last Mile Health, we partner with governments to extend primary healthcare to the world’s most remote communities by designing, growing, and sustaining community health systems.

Our work began in Liberia’s remote, last mile communities, and has grown to support four countries in sub-Saharan Africa. In partnership with governments, we train and support teams of community and frontline health workers as part of exemplary community health systems to bring life-saving services to the doorsteps of people living far from care. We also share tools, research, and best practices globally to contribute to the movement for universal health coverage.

Through effective country programs and global initiatives, we partner with governments to design, scale, strengthen, and sustain teams of digitally empowered community and frontline health workers who bring high-quality primary healthcare within reach of millions of rural people.
