Last Mile Health

Rebuilding Liberia’s devastated healthcare system by training community-based health workers to provide professional care. This life-saving, innovative model of healthcare is rapidly expanding throughout Liberia.

Founded by survivors of Liberia’s civil war, Last Mile Health specializes in training and managing health workers who bridge the gap between clinics and remote villages, where there is no established healthcare.

Currently in Liberia, Last Mile Health is using Ebola response efforts to strengthen long-term systems to ensure we not only end the current epidemic, but build a health system where all Liberians can access health care no matter where they live.

Last Mile Health believes that successful healthcare delivery is achieved when community members, local government officials, national policymakers, private sector and global partners work together.
The result is that Last Mile Health saves lives in the world’s most remote villages.  Our goal is to expand our model throughout Africa and beyond to ensure access to quality healthcare for the one billion people living in remote communities around the world.

We will do this by recruiting, training, equipping, managing and paying local health professionals who bring critical services to the doorsteps of people living in the hardest to reach places on earth. We go where others don’t go to prove that it’s possible.
