Our Mission
The world’s best healthcare for one billion people, for free

A Forward location

Of 8 billion people on the planet, fewer than 2 billion have access to any form of real care.

Healthcare is 20% of GDP in the United States. Yes, 20% of your paycheck goes to a broken healthcare system, and it’s doubling every 10 years.

Despite having created rockets to travel to other planets and AIs that can pass for humans, life expectancy over the last 1,000 years has barely changed.

It’s time we demand more.

Healthcare Should be a Product, not a Service

Our Impact

We’re on a journey to make quality care available to those who need it most. We’re proud to have accomplished a lot in the last five years — and we’re just getting started.
