Our community-based approach takes the power of peer influence and leverages it with tangible, low-cost medical interventions. We train and employ village women living with chronic diseases to serve as education and prevention ambassadors to their peers. These community health workers go door-to-door to screen, diagnose, and provide affordable low-cost treatment options for chronic diseases designed to improve patient compliance as well as create a sustainable income for women.

Our mission at Sucre Blue is to bring next generation diagnostics and medical delivery to the doors of patients who believe in the right of every human being to receive quality care. The aim of our work is to lower the burden of disease on existing medical infrastructure through improved early prevention, detection, and treatment of chronic diseases and eliminate poverty as a result.
