American Initiative for Health and Wellness in Africa (AIHWA) is a non-profit collaboration between African and American physicians who envision an improved healthcare system for the people of Africa. AIHWA is currently completing the first integrated healthcare center, Hope Center, in Africa. This center will specialize in the healing of the body, mind, and soul.


We are a registered 501(c)3 in the United States. 

Since 2016, AIHWA medical missions have served over 3,300 primary care, eye care and mental health patients in Nigeria.

AIHWA's mission is to provide quality, integrated healthcare in Africa for the body + mind + soul.

Our Mission

AIHWA's mission is to improve the health of under-served Africans by providing integrated healthcare for body + mind + soul.

We do this through:

  • Hope Center: an integrated care facility providing primary care, eye care, and mental health counseling. 

  • Our fight against the patient prisoner program: financial assistance for patients held in Nigerian hospitals because they cannot afford to pay their medical bills 

  • Education: medical conferences and seminars for patients, community, and healthcare providers

  • Medical missions: bringing free integrated medical care to remote locations.

Our Mission

Our Vision

AIHWA's vision is being able to provide on-going care through Hope Center — the first integrated medical clinic in Africa.
