Medic Mobile’s mission is to advance health and human flourishing with and for the hardest-to-reach communities. We envision a more just world in which health workers are supported as they provide care for their neighbours, universal health coverage is a reality, and health is a secured human right.

Practically, we have advanced our mission by building, implementing, and supporting open-source digital tools that support CHWs, managers, and facility-based health workers.

Along with our partners, we build and apply software that helps health workers deliver high-quality, equitable care in redesigned health systems.

Our team and partners support more than 27,000 frontline health workers caring for an estimated 15 million people in 18 countries across Africa and Asia.
