eHealth Africa: The Founders’ Story


Technology has the ability to transform and improve healthcare in Africa- this is the belief that eHealth Africa (eHA) was founded on.

eHealth Africa was conceived by Evelyn Castle and Adam Thompson, during their work placement at a Family Health Center in Kaduna state, Nigeria. They witnessed firsthand how overwhelming it was for the staff to track patient information and progress using paper-based methods.

Nearly a decade after, eHA has evolved into a health social enterprise that develops electronic health solutions using our expertise in logistics, geographic information systems, and technology. eHA is a team of over 500 people with country offices in Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Germany, and the US; and operations across the region.
