Living Goods aims to improve the health and wealth of 50 million people in need over the next ten years. To reach that scale Living Goods will continue to grow and improve its own operations. More importantly, we must help others learn from and adapt our proven model. Over 100 organizations have already asked for our help.
Our partnerships team is collaborating with some the world’s largest forward-thinking NGOs to adapt our model. Our shared success will help the biggest actors in public health to achieve the greatest return—measured in lives saved—for their limited resources.
Living Goods launched in Uganda in 2007. We support our own a network of agents, and partner with BRAC Uganda, for whom we provide strategy support, product selection and procurement, mobile technology, and financing. We also work closely with the Ministry of Health and district health teams. By the end of 2015 Living Goods and BRAC will support over 3,000 Health Promoters in Uganda and plan to double that over the next four years.
Living Goods launched a Community Health Promoter network in Kenya in 2015. We work closely with the national and county health ministries. We will be expanding to support 1,800 agents in the next four years.
