Last Mile Health

Last Mile Health (LMH) seeks to save the lives of women and children in Liberia’s most remote villages by improving community healthcare and removing critical barriers to healthcare access.

Since 2007 LMH has pioneered a model Community Health Worker (CHW) system that is redefining rural healthcare delivery, deploying thousands of community health workers in Liberia in partnership with the Liberian Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. LMH transforms local health workers into medical professionals that fight diseases such as diarrhea, pneumonia, malaria – the three highest risks to children in rural Liberia – and provide maternal care. CHWs deliver basic care and target over 75% of the disease burden that kills rural women and children.
