Mission

Possible is a nonprofit healthcare company that delivers high-quality, low-cost healthcare to the poor.

Background

Possible is a nonprofit healthcare company that delivers high-quality, low-cost healthcare to the world’s poor. They are pioneering a new approach, called durable healthcare, that brings together the best of private, public, and philanthropic models.

Since 2008, Possible has treated over 167,000 patients in rural Nepal through government hospitals, clinics, community health workers, and a referral network.

Why Nepal?

Their work in Nepal began in one of the most impossible environments imaginable.

It started in 2008 in a region of over 250,000 people that made $141 per year, lived 36 hours by bus one-way from the capital and healthcare center of the country, were recovering from a 10 year civil war, and didn’t have access to a single healthcare provider.

They were repeatedly told their vision for healthcare might work in some places, but not there.

Which is precisely why they embraced the challenge, and charged forward determined to defy expectations.

For they wanted to prove that all lives share equal value.

And they knew that if we could create a healthcare model that worked fully for the poor in a region labelled impossible, their innovations and proof would be more powerful.
