Delivering healthcare for the 52% of the world who can’t access it is a big, bold ambition that we can’t do alone. Innovative partnerships and collaboration are at the heart of everything we do. We partner with organizations operating in underserved rural communities that will benefit from reach52’s health services.
This includes committed NGOs, socially-minded private sector businesses and other civil society organizations who share our purpose. Collaborations allow reach52 and our partners to deliver more impact for more communities in more countries, achieving our common goals faster.
Implementation country: Kenya
reach52 is seeking expressions of interest from established community-based organizations, such as NGOs, socially-minded private sector firms, and civil society organizations to partner together to implement our digital health model in new rural communities. By partnering with us, you can use our award-winning health tech and services to support the delivery of your impact goals, connecting underserved populations to primary care healthcare services and access to affordable health products.
Implementation partners should conform to the following requirements:
- Projects to be implemented in Kenya
- Non-profit or for-profit organizations with existing community operations in rural regions, relationships with rural populations
- A broad focus on providing supports/services relating to health, livelihoods; micro-entrepreneurialism, and/or rural development
- Organizational experience or interest in implementing social business practices is valued
Objectives and Activities
Our proposed growth partnerships are intended to improve outcomes for beneficiaries in targeted
communities by improving access and quality of primary health service delivery. Our launch project in
Kenya involves recruiting, training, 1600 Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) who will be equipped with
the reach52 eHealth Android application. These CHVs will then work to onboard 144,000 rural residents to
the reach52 platform, while also screening for malnutrition risk factors.
- Upskill 1600 rural CHVs on how to use reach52 eHealth Android application; how to screen for malnutrition and provide appropriate referrals to care, as required.
- Coordinate upskilled CHVs in onboarding 144,000 local residents to reach52 eHealth platform through door-to-door engagement; screen for malnutrition using MUAC and/or BMI.
Phase 3 (future phase TBD)
- Launch and operate a marketplace of affordable health products and services, including nutritional supplements; micro-insurance; and medicines.
reach52 supports our growth partners through a result-based funding model. Unlike traditional grant-based funders, we fund our partners for specific outputs achieved, according to pre-agreed fees. This approach provides partners with sustainable, scalable funding, and incentivizes impact. Funding outputs will vary based on partner and geography but may include compensation for activities such as:
- Each local resident onboarded to the eHealth platform
- Each health worker trained
- Each health screening delivered
- Each health promotion engagement
