For World Health Day, we caught up with entrepreneur and adviser on community health policy, Liz Jarman, who is currently driving change and saving lives in Africa.

Liz is the Chief Strategy Officer for a not-for-profit organisation called Living Goods. Living Goods works to strengthen community health care in developing countries by supporting governments in the delivery of high impact health services to mothers and children in their communities at a low cost. She has been working for Living Goods for more than 4 years and has been living in Kenya for 6 years. However, before that she lived in London, working for Sainsbury’s as Head of Product Technology, overseeing a team of 60 that ensured the quality of 10,000 private label products, from more than 1,000 suppliers.Liz is the Chief Strategy Officer for a not-for-profit organisation called Living Goods.
