The AMH Medical Advisory Board

African Mission Healthcare was established in 2010 with the fundamental belief that developing quality, compassionate healthcare is critically important for the future of Africa. Our Medical Advisory Board helps us transform that belief into reality.

AMH is delighted to announce its Medical Advisory Board, under the Chairmanship of Dr. Marty Makary of Johns Hopkins University.

We have launched the Medical Advisory Board to be the bridge between medical professionals in Africa and their colleagues in the West to exchange ideas, create solutions, and build relationships. 

We will have monthly meetings, featuring a presentation from doctors in Africa about his/her practice there -- with questions, comments, and feedback from the other members.
