As an African not-for-profit, we strive to improve global health by developing information systems, growing partnerships and building local capacity.
What We Do
We specialise in digital health information systems for African low-resource settings. We focus on enterprise software and facility hardware.
From design to development, then onward to implementation, training and support. And in future, data analysis for the strategic management of those limited resources.
