2023 marked the culmination of our ambitious 2020-2023 strategy period. Over the past three years, we not only met our goals but exceeded them by scaling our proven health care solutions and testing new ways to transform health delivery in the most remote and under-reached communities. 

This success could not have been possible without radical collaboration with communities, governments, the private sector, impact organizations and our generous donors. 

By the end of 2023, VillageReach with our partners:

  • Helped increase access to quality health care for 79 million people across Africa, surpassing our original target of reaching 50 million people by 2023. 
  • Supported 660,485 health workers’ ability to deliver products and quality health services to the most under-reached. 
  • We assisted in the delivery of health products to or from 12,000 health facilities

Over the strategy period, VillageReach adapted to meet the relentless challenges of a global pandemic while keeping our big-picture ambitions in mind. We’ve adapted to supply chain challenges and rallied new coalitions around our shared vision of a world where each person has the health care needed to thrive. 

In 2023, we diversified our efforts, with our innovative polio lab sample transport team leading the way across 15 countries, for instance. We’ve conducted in-depth research, integrating community voices to transform primary health care systems into truly responsive models, and have expanded routine immunization through people-centered initiatives. We continue to equip health care workers with the tools and resources they need to deliver essential health services to even the most under-reached populations. 

Thanks to our incredible partners – governments, the private sector, and local communities – we’re several steps closer to achieving universal health coverage (UHC) by 2030. Now, we enter our next strategic period stronger than ever, ready to cross the finish line to UHC, together.  

Thank you for journeying with us.
