Our supporters and partners


eHealth Africa is based out of Nigeria which gives us the ability to easily travel around the continent. Our local staff have practical insight into the health problems we face and create innovative yet realistic solutions. There is no one solution for all problems. Each problem needs to be analyzed extensively before developing a solution and many times those solutions need to be custom built. This gives us the ability to create innovative project designs which specifically address the needs of the problem while ensuring the sustainability and effectiveness of the solution.

eHealth Africa has developed mutual partnerships with universities, government agencies, and other NGOs. They are vital to our success.
