Last Mile Health, Living Goods Use Mobile Technology To Raise More Funds, Reach More People

Inside Philanthropy: Does Mobile Technology Hold the Key to Conquering the “Last Mile” in Global Health?
“…According to Raj Panjabi, one of the cofounders of Last Mile Health, it’s simply wrong that people routinely die in a wealthy world simply because they live too far from a doctor’s office or health care clinic. … In the just over a decade since its founding, Last Mile Health has gained some serious traction in the global health community and among funders. … What’s really shaking loose the big money [is] that Last Mile Health has forged an innovative partnership with Living Goods — a San Francisco-based outfit that is also a highly respected player in the global health space…” (Moses, 2/5).
