Reimagining African healthcare

Market Access Africa is a mission-driven healthcare organization that works with the public, private and third-sector to design and deliver transformational healthcare solutions for Africa.

We envision an Africa where world-class healthcare is the standard, and where deep-rooted inequities in access to lifesaving technologies and services are a thing of the past. To solve complex problems on the ground, we curate and advance bold, new ideas to accelerate access to the best innovations and appropriate solutions for Africa’s health systems and markets.
