About the Organization
LN is a nonprofit organization that creates innovative solutions for the everyday health challenges facing Africa’s poor. In 2012, LN launched a conversion franchise network in Burundi, East Africa to build to capacity of local faith-based clinics and hospitals through nurse training, management training, growth financing and medicine supply. We have rapidly expanded to a network of over 100 partner facilities in Burundi, Uganda and the D.R. Congo. In 2018, LN will continue to scale up current country programs and launch operations in Malawi. Our goal is to improve clinical performance 50% within 24 months of partnership, but we regularly see performance double in that time. In addition, LN aims to help clinics achieve financial sustainability through our medicine supply and equipment financing. Our vision is to double the quality of care received at 20,000,000 patients visits in 1,000 franchised clinics operating in 10 African countries.
