Bold Idea 

Pioneer a comprehensive approach to reconstruct the rural health care system in war-torn Liberia with an efficient and effective training and outreach model for community health workers.

Summary 

Founded by survivors of Liberia’s civil war, Last Mile Health (known in Liberia as Tiyatien Health) partners with the Liberian government to pioneer a model community health worker (CHW) system that is redefining how post-conflict nations rebuild rural public health services. Filling the massive health worker shortage in rural post-conflict areas, CHWs form a novel locally-led primary care workforce that delivers comprehensive home-based medical and social services—providing access to care for the poorest of the poor.

Experience 

Peter Luckow received a BA in Anthropology from Northwestern University. After his sophomore year of college, he took a gap year and started GlobeMed, a national student-driven nonprofit organization partnering university students with grassroots health organizations around the world to support public health projects and advance the movement for global health equity. Peter wrote his thesis on HIV/AIDS and Structural Violence in Rural Liberia.
