The women of  Africa

Mission

Women are the thread that holds the fabric of Africa together. When women have access to food, education and good healthcare, families thrive. We believe that a healthy Africa begins with healthy African women.

We are working to improve access to quality healthcare for the 500M women of Africa

We have been present in Africa for more than 100 years. We understand the complexities of its diverse healthcare environments. This knowledge affords us unique insight into the needs of women -  across generations and across the continent.

Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

  • Maternal and child health
  • Breast, cervical and cardiac health (non-communicable diseases)
  • Infrastructure rehabilitation and caregiver training

Who we work with:

Many of the brightest, most successful ideas are born of synergy. Over the past decades, we've worked closely with support organizations to implement projects across North-Africa, the Maghreb and Sub-Sahara Africa.

 

We're always interested in exploring collaborative opportunities with stakeholders in the development, business, academic, non-profit and medical communities. If you are similarly committed to better healthcare in Africa, please join us.
