LifeNet Awarded Henry Schein Cares Medal

Washington, DC: The Henry Schein Cares Foundation has named LifeNet International “Best in Class” in the medical category for the 2019 Henry Schein Cares Medal.

Henry Schein Cares established the award to recognize programming excellence and to encourage multi-disciplinary teams to expand access to healthcare for the underserved. With applicants from around the world, winning organizations must demonstrate that their good work can be sustained over a prolonged period.

On July 16, 2019, representatives from Henry Schein Cares presented LifeNet President Dave Evans (pictured above) with the award along with a $10,000 prize to invest in the organization’s ongoing work to provide high-quality care to underserved patients in Uganda, Burundi, Malawi, and the DRC.

“We’re honored and grateful to receive this award,” said LifeNet President Dave Evans. “It comes with a $10,000 grant to support LifeNet’s ongoing work in sub-Saharan Africa. These funds will immediately be put to work, empowering local healthcare workers to save and improve the lives of their patients.”

About LifeNet International: Founded in 2009 by an entrepreneur, LifeNet International partners with local, last-mile health facilities in sub-Saharan Africa to bridge the deadly gap separating existing knowledge, tools, and resources from the health workers who need them to save lives. LifeNet rapidly and effectively deploys life-saving and life-improving interventions directly to health workers and staff at last-mile facilities. Through its growing franchise network of 165 facilities, LifeNet transforms healthcare for more than 1.5 million patient visits every year in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, and Malawi.
