Project coordinator

In Sub-Saharan Africa, over 600 million people lack access to basic healthcare. Reaching the last mile
with essential healthcare services is challenging as professional healthcare providers are lacking and
products and medication are often unavailable, too expensive or of poor quality. To solve this
problem, Healthy Entrepreneurs was founded in 2012.

Healthy Entrepreneurs is a social enterprise with more than 10 years of experience in offering health
services in rural areas in African countries. With our network of 15,000 Community Health
Entrepreneurs, more than 18 million people in Burundi, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda
benefit from home-based care services offered.

In the coming 8 years, Healthy Entrepreneurs will expand her network to 250,000 Community Health
Entrepreneurs, serving more than 300 million people in 20 countries. The package of health products
and services offered will further expand using technology and other tailored innovations. By 2030,
Healthy Entrepreneurs aims to be the leading last mile service delivery organization for primary
healthcare in Sub-Saharan Africa.
