African Health Innovation Centre
AHIC strengthens Africa’s burgeoning health innovation ecosystem and empowers emerging leaders to improve health outcomes through entrepreneurship and innovation. We are dedicated to fostering innovation in the healthcare sector to make a lasting impact on public health across the continent.
AHIC started as a program under Impact Hub Accra in June 2016. Our journey began with mapping Ghana’s health innovation ecosystem and organizing West Africa’s pioneering health innovation hackathon, Health Hack Accra. Over the next three years, we established MEDspace, an early-stage startup incubator, conducted digital eHealth meetups, and designed a summer research program for emerging public health leaders.
In Spring 2019, AHIC evolved into a separate legal entity, becoming the first organization in Ghana solely dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs and health professionals to leverage their skills and experiences to create innovative solutions in the healthcare sector.
