A collection of all my healthcare articles from across the web.

Since I started the Flying Doctors Nigeria Air Ambulance (www.flyingdoctorsnigeria.com) service, my work has taken me all over the world, especially to remote parts of West and Central Africa.

This has given me a lot insight into healthcare and healthcare solutions for Africa. See my profile. I have published 3 healthcare books and multiple articles on healthcare in the New York Times, Linkedin (Awarded as a Linkedin Top Healthcare writer, 2 years in a row), the Stanford Review, here on medium, on Techcabal and on CNN.

So many people have asked me to put all my articles in one, place. So here it is. One of my earliest was 2013 in the New York Times. Africa’s Trauma Epidemic .

The rest are below:
