Though we have seen remarkable improvements in access to health services in sub-Saharan Africa, inequities and gaps in coverage persist for those in the lowest income levels, marginalized populations, and other hard-to-reach populations. These populations are the least likely to have access to routine care and essential medicines and vaccines. Changing disease burden, urbanization, migration and a growing youth population are placing more pressure on already fragile health systems.
VillageReach works with governments and the private sector to increase access to medicines and vaccines, improve the capacity of the health workforce and enable digital health technologies for better decision-making for patients, health workers and policy-makers. Building on the solutions we have developed, we will extend our approach beyond the health facility, working with our partners to reach deeper into the community and build responsive, people-centered health systems.
