About US

Our Vision

Equipping Africa for the future by connecting people, ideas and innovative solutions to problems in health and medical education.

Our Mission

To facilitate partnerships between Africans and Westerners who have the skills and desire to make a difference in their world.

Our Approach

We believe that the most effective change occurs through relationships that are built one person at a time. We use these relationships to teach medical skills to physicians, students, and non-medical people.
