A word from our managing director
A Word From Our Managing Director
The economic opportunities Live Well provides in marginalised, poor communities are really important. This inspires me every day. I also love the fact that Live Well is so innovative, not only in that we aim to recover 100% of our costs but that we invest time in engaging communities and training Community Health Entrepreneurs effectively. Finally, being a woman and a mother drives my enthusiasm for Live Well; affordable access to healthcare and health products is so vital to families in our communities.
Why Live Well is so unique
The range of health products we bring to people’s doorsteps meets so many health needs; nutritional supplements, contraceptives, toothpaste and even energy-saving solar lamps, for example – this product offering is unique. Live Well is also unique because community members know and trust our people and products; something that has taken time but it is so important in ensuring last mile distribution.
A change in community healthcare
What to expect next
Our vision is ultimately to scale up across Zambia but its really important to get our social enterprise model right and become more self-sustaining first, so we have some consolidating work to do. I’m also excited about how we can use digital technology to make training more accessible for our Community Health Entrepreneurs and to improve stock management at all stages of our supply chain.
