Summary

An innovative model that strengthens last-mile logistics services and extends quality healthcare, energy, communications, and other modern services to remote underserved villages.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Three million children die yearly from vaccine preventable diseases. The problem is that modern healthcare doesn’t reach the rural poor who are most vulnerable disease. In Mozambique, 85% of the population lives in remote villages. VillageReach serves 1.5 million people in Cabo Delgado and following expansion into neighboring Nampula will serve 5 million, most of whom are the rural poor. Of those, children and women benefit the most due to VillageReach’s focus on immunization and maternal care.

How will this project solve this problem?

Dependable distribution of vaccines & critical medical supplies; Refrigerator operations & maintenance; Safe injection & medical waste disposal; Reliable energy supply; Rural/urban communications; Capacity building Community development

Potential Long Term Impact

Expand service to 210 clinics; Expand coverage to 5 million people; Increase immunization by 50% Introduce injection safety & waste management practices 210; Enable outreach services to 210 clinics; Refine model & framework to guide replication
