Our Mission

Save lives and improve health by increasing access to quality healthcare for the most underserved communities.

“I am certain that there are children who are alive today in Africa because of VillageReach.”

~ Kari Glover, VillageReach Board Member


A Global Challenge

Globally, more than 1 billion people have little or no access to healthcare and 6.3 million children die each year primarily from preventable diseases. The great majority live in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) where limited resources and infrastructure significantly impede the ability to access quality health services.  Access is fundamental to our mission and history.

Reaching the Last Mile

While tremendous investments have been made to bring new medicines, technologies, and other global health innovations to LMICs, barriers to delivering these innovations and providing basic health services remain a significant challenge, especially in the most rural and remote communities. Health systems simply don’t have the capacity to effectively respond to demand through to the last mile –  where healthcare is delivered.

Too often, health systems in LMICs cannot adequately reach or serve the last mile because the system itself and new interventions are not designed to accommodate the unique needs of these environments.

Sustainable and scalable solutions in this setting require an integrated approach with a focus on last mile delivery. This is the cornerstone of our mission and work.
