The women of  Africa


We are committed to relationships that are successful, effective, and far-reaching. We are ready to provide needed financial solutions, technical assistance, and clinical expertise that contribute to the development of better healthcare standards throughout Africa.


We're interested in working together toward the Millennium Development Goals, specifically goals 4 and 5, as well as tackling the burden of non-communicable diseases, a key health area for consideration in the post-2015 development agenda.


If you are similarly committed to improving access to healthcare for the women of Africa, please contact us to tell us more about your work.
