Our Impact

70,000,000 people have increased access to quality health care in sub-Saharan Africa.

11,500 health workers supported to deliver products and quality health services to the most under-reached.

3,000 health facilities received deliveries of health products through our programs.

Reaching Health Care
For All

Responsive primary health care (PHC) ensures that health care services are available when they are required, even for the hardest-to-reach communities, it is responsive to people’s preferences, and people obtain the services and products they want and need. This is the core of VillageReach’s strategy: building responsive primary health care systems. Adopting these changes will require policy, practice and systems shifts, calling for partnerships with civil society, the private sector, political leaders and multilateral institutions to accelerate the transformative action needed for responsive PHC.

Building People-Centered Health Care Systems

To achieve universal health coverage by 2030, we must collectively scale up and sustain innovative practices that increase access to essential health services while accelerating innovation through collaboration. Reducing inequities in access relies on our collective ability to design health solutions that overcome barriers under-reached communities face today. When community insights—the analyzed needs, preferences and feedback of a population—are integrated at a systems level and routinely acted upon, we can improve health outcomes.
