Living Goods (LG) empowers community health workers (CHW) to deliver life-saving products and services to homes of the underprivileged and underserved in Uganda.
The program recruits, trains and supports a network of CHWs who go door-to-door to teach families how to improve their health while also supplying low-cost, life-changing products from its well-stocked branch warehouses. LG provides ongoing training, supervision and recertification. Its results-based financing model (RFB) dramatically reduces deaths in the most vulnerable populations for an annual cost of less than $2 per person while also generating revenue that compensates the millions of CHWs required to provide the much-needed care. LG seeks large scale impact and is able to deliver this systematically through the use of mobile tools and real-time performance management as well as by leveraging its partnerships.
