Last Mile Health

Delivering basic healthcare to the most remote villages in Africa
Mission:

Last Mile Health is creating a new health workforce to bring care to remote villages in Liberia. Last Mile trains community members and former patients to serve as frontline health workers, delivering comprehensive home-based medical, social, economic services to communities previously deemed unreachable.

Five goals underpin the Last Mile program model:

1) Target the poorest, most remote villages.

2) Recruit, train, support and employ villagers to serve as professional frontline health workers.

3) Provide comprehensive home-based care to women and children.

4) Integrate home-based care with clinical services at primary health care facilities.

5) Drive high performance through novel technology-driven training, research and information systems.

Last Mile Health (SM) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation with offices in Boston, MA and Liberia.
