Living Goods (LG) aims to improve the lives of tens of millions of underserved people by transforming community health services across the developing world. We have developed a model that has been independently proven to reduce child mortality by 27%. We continue to realize these results at a net cost of less than $2 per person per year. Our goal now is to achieve multi-national scale and to truly create systemic change that allows long-term sustainable financing of community health. It is clear that success will require us to do more than grow our operations. We must also scale through large, strategic partnerships with government and NGO partners. This is where you come in!
