A NEW HUMANITARIAN APPROACH
ALIMA pools the expertise of international aid workers, national medical organizations and global research institutions to provide quality medical care to people in need and carry out cutting-edge research to improve humanitarian medicine.
By sharing resources and know-how, ALIMA and its partners are increasing access to care for communities at risk and expanding humanitarian medical response capacity in some of the most challenging contexts in the world.
INNOVATION AND RESEARCH
Infectious diseases cause 60% of all childhood deaths in Africa, yet they are the subject of only 2% of medical research trials worldwide. Even less research is devoted to improving emergency humanitarian medicine.
ALIMA invests in operational and clinical research to improve medical care in humanitarian emergencies, including trauma surgery, nutrition, paediatric care, and Ebola prevention and treatment.
