There are 1,300,000 malaria patients in the world. 1,100,000  or 85% are in Africa. 3,900,000 patients suffer from some form of respiratory illness. 1,100,000 or 28% reside in Africa. 8,500,000 patients across the globe suffer from malaria, diarrhoeal, respiratory diseases and tuberculosis. 3,250,000 or 38% reside in Africa. These diseases are treatable and preventable with inexpensive drugs. –

LivingGoods uses a door-to-door, an “Avon calling like” business model to give Ugandans the opportunity to purchase inexpensive drugs that prevent or treat these diseases. It also provides jobs to those who purchase this business opportunity.

This is an interesting model that removes the government bureaucracy and gets medicine to those that need it at a reasonable price. Low overhead, direct sales.

Take a moment and learn about the LivingGoods Model, their strategy, and their products. If you believe in their goal, feel free to donate.
