Partners for the last mile:
Supporting community-led solutions.
How We Work
The J.C. Flowers Foundation works with a wide range of partners to solve critical health and social problems affecting isolated, or “last mile,” communities. The Foundation seeks maximum impact from its investments by partnering with other funding organizations, governments, and local, grassroots organizations with expertise and presence in communities that are often ignored.
Because people living in endemic communities are experts in local realities, and ultimately determine the success of malaria elimination efforts.
Because parasites and mosquitoes do not respect national boundaries, and many families live on both sides and cross frequently.
We walk together as a community of scientists, local leaders, national governments, religious bodies, and multilateral and non-profit organizations. Our organization hosts a round table every year as well as releasing an annual report, both with the support of our partners.
Focused on Last Mile Communities
These 'Last Mile' communities are often remote and economically poor, but where malaria elimination is essential.
Our Commitment to Supporting Re-entry
Supporting reentry through leadership, advocacy, and community.
