Living Goods aims to improve the lives of tens of millions of underserved people by ensuring every woman and child has access to basic community health. We have developed a model for community health that has been independently proven to reduce child mortality by 27%. We do this extremely cost-effectively at a net cost of less than $2 per person per year. Our goal now is to spread impact by strengthening community health systems across the developing world. Living Goods partners closely with the Governments of Kenya and Uganda to improve community health in areas where we have direct operations. We are also spreading impact and strengthening community health systems through assisted networks led by Governments and NGO partners. We seek to build on this success and in a big way, particularly working more closely with government. That’s where you come in!

What is Living Goods?
Living Goods supports networks of ‘Avon-like’ micro-entrepreneurs who go door-to-door teaching families how to improve their health and wealth while selling affordable, high-impact products like basic medicines, fortified foods, water filters, clean cook stoves, and solar lights. Living Goods seeks nothing less than a disruptive reinvention of distribution in emerging markets, through networks of franchised micro-entrepreneurs who leverage Living Goods’ brand, buying power and mobile marketing tools to deliver vital products at accessible prices to the people who need them most. By combining the best practices from the worlds of micro-enterprise, franchising and public health, Living Goods is creating a fully sustainable system to improve the health, and wealth, of underserved communities.
