Connecting the Last Mile to the Global Health Community

“When you talk about the last mile, we are truly at the very last mile. As a rural hospital in Zimbabwe, we don’t often get the chance to interact with global health organizations to identify ways we can partner, share learnings, and deepen our impact. Being a member of the Bay Area Global Health Alliance has enabled us to connect with leaders in global health and share our work in a way we haven’t before.” – Major Mereki, Head, Chidamoyo Christian Hospital. Spring outreach resulted in new partnerships with Alliance members MedShare and Fistula Foundation for the rural hospital to improve the delivery of maternal healthcare to Chidamoyo’s rural, last-mile patients.
