We are led by Africans whose desire to contribute their medical expertise toward a strong healthcare ecosystem on the continent spans decades. Through expert care and a willingness to bring standardized medical practices to rural and underserved communities across the continent, we are doing our small but significant part to give back to a continent that has given so much to the world.
This is why we must act now
Lack of Personnel
565 neurosurgeons care for over 1 billion people on the African continent. That’s not even a surgeon for every 2 million people. Compare that with 1:85,000 in the United States. In East Africa there is one neurosurgeon for every 10 million people. For those in need, it is virtually impossible to receive even the minimum care.
Neurological disorders are increasingly prevalent in Sub-Saharan Africa, affecting 58 out of every 1,000 people. If these individuals were afforded the same level and variety of treatment, the rate of remission for neurological disorders in Africa would approach that of the Western world.
