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
Together with our partners, we ensure that lifesaving vaccines, medicines and other essential health supplies reach underserved communities. We empower health workers with tools and resources to improve quality health care. We harness the power of data and technology so that everyone – from patients to policy makers– can make informed decisions that improve health outcomes.

A Dream Come True
Dr. Archimede Makaya is passionate about finding sustainable solutions to improve access to quality health care in rural communities. Before coming to VillageReach, he had worked as a physician and at the DRC Ministry of Health (MoH). So, seeing firsthand what limited access to lifesaving medicines and vaccines can do to communities, Dr. Archimede was excited to join VillageReach and use drone technology to get health products to people.
Strengthening Health Systems
It is hard to be forward thinking on a roller coaster, but at VillageReach, that is exactly what we set out to do early in the pandemic.”
This is how Emily Bancroft began her president’s letter in our 2021 Annual Impact Report. The ups and downs of the pandemic were relentless, but during this past fiscal year VillageReach continued to adapt while keeping in mind our big picture: to accelerate the development of people-centered health systems and to be a global leader in radical collaboration to scale and sustain impact.

Building People-Centered Health Care Systems
Health product supply chains are often designed to optimize overall cost and efficiency, or are built around administrative health system structures, but are not nimble enough to address the needs of under-served people. VillageReach applies an equity lens to ensure that our solutions are responsive to people’s needs and preferences, and are accessible to all.
