Project Last Mile’s partnership with the Yale Global Health Leadership Institute
The southernmost country in Africa, South Africa is home to over 54 million people.
The country has one of the world’s highest HIV positive populations with an estimated 7,4 million people living with HIV. The South African government manages the highest HIV donor-supported program in the world with 3,8 million people on antiretroviral treatments.
Project Last Mile is supporting the National Department of Health through an invitation from USAID to help create an effective dispensing and distribution model to improve availability of life-saving chronic medicines for millions of patients across South Africa.
We are following a similar process that the private sector uses to design and operationalize a franchise model to create chronic medicine Pick-up Points.
