Who we are | our approach
A world where each person has the
health care needed to thrive
Our Goals and Approach
To achieve our vision and ensure equitable access for all communities, we need health systems that respond to the unique desires, circumstances and behaviors of the people they serve. VillageReach advocates for quality health care that reaches all communities, working with partners in sub-Saharan Africa to solve health care delivery challenges right down to the smallest and hardest-to-reach communities. We co-develop people-centered solutions that transform health care delivery by building tech-enabled pathways to primary health care, making products available to people, and by driving sustained impact.
How We Work
VillageReach has developed and refined an approach of co-creating innovative solutions in the delivery of health products and services, integrating solutions with proven impact into the health system, and ensuring governments and their partners are prepared to sustain them over time.
How We Work Resources
Equity First Approach
Progress has been made, but inequities and gaps in health coverage persist for those in the lowest income levels, marginalized populations, and other hard-to-reach populations. To reach the segments of the population who are currently at risk of being left behind, the health system must shift to better incorporate people’s needs and preferences into the design and delivery of services.
Supply chains can be adapted to be responsive to people’s needs and preferences. Applying an equity lens to addressing supply chain barriers can help ensure health products are (1) conveniently accessible to all; (2) available when needed; and (3) potent at the point of delivery. We’ve developed guidance to promote equitable health product access through supply chain design for under-served populations.
