Delivering health to the poor

Uncommon Heroes: Blaise Judja-Sato

Born in Cameroon, Blaise Judja-Sato was a successful U.S. businessman when a devastating flood in Mozambique prompted his return to Africa. While helping with relief efforts, he saw how difficult it was to get medicines across the "last mile" to those in need.

He founded VillageReach to solve infrastructure gaps in remote areas, including locating quality suppliers and providing reliable transport and training in vaccine management and safe waste disposal. VillageReach has now equipped and trained staff in 251 clinics that serve over 5 million people.

VillageReach has transferred program management to its local Mozambican partner, and now plans to replicate its model in other countries over the next three years.
