The Global Environment & Technology Foundation (GETF), a seasoned non-profit organization, is excited to announce a new Request for Proposals (RFP) under Project Last Mile. This initiative seeks to enhance the availability of family planning products by supporting social enterprises with data collection, analysis, and reporting. Here’s a brief overview of the project and how you can get involved.

Project Last Mile is a public-private partnership that leverages The Coca-Cola Company’s supply chain and marketing expertise to improve the distribution of health services in Africa.

Program background and goals

Access to family planning resources is crucial for the health of families, especially women and girls. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated challenges in accessing these services. Social enterprises are pivotal in bridging this gap but often lack the necessary expertise to scale their operations effectively.

Project Last Mile aims to empower these enterprises by providing technical assistance from supply chain experts. The program’s objectives include:

  1. Increasing reach: Enhance the availability of family planning commodities to remote areas.
  2. Strengthening health systems: Boost the operational capacities of enterprises for more efficient distribution.
  3. Sustainability and scale: Integrate private sector innovations to sustain and expand the distribution of family planning products.

Phase 1 and Phase 2 enterprises

In Phase 1 (2021-2022), Project Last Mile assisted two enterprises: Total Family Health Organization in Ghana and Healthy Entrepreneurs in Uganda. Read more about this here. Currently, in Phase 2 (2024), the program supports Maisha Meds in Kenya and Parkers’ Mobile Clinics in Nigeria.
