VIA Global Health was featured in a June 1st article by Yunus Social Business, an industry-leading group pioneered by their Co-Founder, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus, which tackles poverty from the bottom up with Philanthropic Venture Funds and the top down with Corporate Innovation. The piece, titled “Delivering Health Services to the People who Need Them Most,” outlines the challenges in creating access to critical medical supplies in developing areas that need them most, and features several leaders in the category who are successfully addressing the global health challenge.

From the article:

“People often talk about the food and water shortages in developing countries. But for some reason, worldwide access to medical care is an issue that’s not spoken about enough. No one should risk death because of a distribution problem in the medical industry but unfortunately this is the case. Everyone deserves access to lifesaving healthcare and it’s through companies like Mobile Schools Health that this is becoming a reality.”

VIA Global health is a startup reinventing the global healthcare supply chain. Their vision is to scale health innovation to the 6 billion people living in emerging economies. By leveraging our global purchasing platform, VIA will connect global healthcare equipment suppliers to a network of verified local distributors – with a mission to provide universal access to the tools that enable quality healthcare.

’I believe healthcare is a basic human right, irrespective of where in the world we are born. And that everyone should have access to the tools necessary for quality healthcare. In our short existence, VIA has delivered medical equipment to 41 countries, positively impacting the lives of over 150,000 mothers and newborns.’ –  Noah Perin, Founder of VIA Global Health”
