Global Health Initiative

We know that education is the foundation for developing competent and skilled healthcare professionals to tackle health challenges. Our non-profit Global Health Initiative provides up-to-date digital medical knowledge to universities across sub-Saharan Africa.

Addressing major global health challenges with our partners

We focus on health and education

Health and education are at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals. We support medical students in receiving an excellent medical education and we build the capacity of educators in blended learning and digital literacy.

We commit to solving the shortage of healthcare professionals

A total of 57 Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) have been identified to have a critical shortage of health providers. It is estimated that 4 million healthcare professionals are needed to bridge the gap, with 1.5 million in Africa alone.

We contribute to better quality of care and stronger health systems

Every year, approximately 5 million deaths are directly attributed to poor quality of care and around 3.5 million deaths occur from preventable diseases due to non-utilization of health services in Low- and Middle-Income Countries.
