Jembi Health Systems (Jembi) is an African-based not-for-profit company based in South Africa focusing on the development of eHealth and health Information systems in developing countries. The idea for Jembi grew out of the Open Architectures and Standards in Information Systems (OASIS) project, funded by the Canadian International Development Research Center (IDRC) and awarded to the South African Medical Research Council (MRC) in 2007.
The NGO was started by Dr Chris Seebregts in 2009 and has since grown rapidly to provide infrastructural support for projects and offices in several African countries, including South Africa, Mozambique, Rwanda and Zimbabwe. Jembi’s Head Office is based in Tokai, Cape Town, South Africa. Project/satellite offices are based in Maputo, Kigali and Lusaka.
