US Doctors for Africa

US Doctors for Africa is a humanitarian organization committed to increasing access to medical care for diseases and conditions affecting the people of Africa. By mobilizing and distributing medical manpower, supplies, and equipment to medical institutions throughout the continent of Africa, we are able to provide medical and preventative healthcare and capacity-building to regions of Africa without available medical services. US Doctors for Africa believes that healthcare is a basic human right, and recognizes that a healthy population is essential for growth, development, and prosperity in every society.

US Doctors for Africa is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that is dedicated to the idea that access to healthcare is a fundamental human right. We deliver multi-disciplinary teams of healthcare professionals and equipment to resource-poor regions in Africa with a mission to provide primary care, strategic planning, education, training, and capacity-building. We seek first to aid the people of Africa and then to empower them to respond to the health crisis they face.

US Doctors for Africa relies on the energy, talent, compassion and commitment of its volunteers and partner organizations. Responsible international citizenship incurs obligation and demands action. US Doctors for Africa acts to meet those obligations, recognizing that the hope it delivers to the African people is its own.

US Doctors for Africa mobilizes volunteers and other resources from the United States and strategically distributes these resources in regions where they are most needed. Because the quality of care depends on understanding the cultures and contexts in which it is provided, we design and implement each response in concert with local needs and expertise, alert to regional circumstances and aware of ethnic, religious, cultural and/or national sensitivities.

We also create strong, tactical, strategic partnerships with US medical institutions, NGOs, governments and pharmaceutical companies in order to receive donations of medical supplies and equipment, and distribute them to clinics, hospitals, and other medical institutions in Africa where there is a great need for resources.

US Doctors for Africa also responds to domestic natural disasters by mobilizing and distributing critical medical resources to areas that have been impacted by these events.
