Our efforts are designed to test new approaches and innovations and need to be bold to impact change. In determining the experiments, the Mission Leapfrog teams seek areas of change that can address equity and accessibility to healthcare in a sustainable way.

This ability to bring treatment options from the hospitals to the communities where these women live would be a leapfrog in impact for these women and healthcare delivery in the country overall.Read more
