THE LIFENET WAY

LIFENET IS USING BUSINESS PRINCIPLES TO TRANSFORM HEALTHCARE

Drawing on years of experience in the business sector, LifeNet was built as a social franchise. We primarily work with existing, faith-based health centers that maintain their local owner/operate and convert to franchisees. These health facilities have access to LifeNet’s professional training, quality assurance, equipment and supplies, and branding. Our partners finance their own operations, as well as medicine and equipment purchases, ensuring local responsibility and sustainability. We provide comprehensive solutions to elevate the standard of care for millions of vulnerable patients. This structure enables us to leverage existing process, human, and physical capital for quick scale, high return on investment, and great impact for the health of millions of patients every year.

OUR VISION & MISSION

LifeNet’s mission is to transform African healthcare and save lives.

LifeNet International transforms African health facilities to provide quality, sustainable healthcare and save lives.

Guided by the belief that every individual deserves an equal opportunity to lead a healthy and whole life, LifeNet improves the quality of health systems from the ground up. We are dedicated to strengthening health systems by leveraging existing resources to maximize return on investment and promote local sustainability. Through the framework of a social franchise, we innovate and implement pragmatic responses to everyday health challenges facing the poor.

Our vision is to see every person in sub-Saharan Africa have the opportunity to lead a healthy and whole life. Our partners are making this a reality, saving thousands of lives every year and caring for over 7 million patient visits with high quality healthcare, every year.

WE PARTNER WITH FAITH-BASED HEALTH CENTERS TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF HEALTHCARE THE LIFENET WAY

Why faith-based health centers? We have found that they provide more patients higher quality care at lower cost than their counterparts. Additionally, churches often operate networks of health centers as well as educational and religious facilities, making them powerful vehicles for community-wide change.

LifeNet multiplies the impact of this “by the community, for the community” system by leveraging the human capital behind it. We look forward to partnering with an expanding variety of health centers and hospitals as we grow.
