AFG Receives Gates Foundation Grand Challenges Exploration Grant

We are thrilled to announce that AFG has received a Grand Challenges Exploration grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This grants funds new and innovative ideas to solve the world’s persistent health problem. AFG will be running a pilot project that will allow people living in remote areas of Guinea to directly communicate via text message with our Labomobil© and alert us when disease strikes. The mobile lab will then be sent to these areas to diagnose and collect data. We are hopeful that this will provide useful information that will allow AFG, the Ministry of Health and other health organizations to eradicate tropical diseases which are still all too common in Guinea.

  • AFG needs your help! We depend on contributions from foundations, companies and individuals to continue our work in Guinea.

    Our primary goal is to assist hospitals and health centers in Guinea who care for the welfare of the Guinean population. We do this by providing medical aid, improving and upgrading existing infrastructure in health facilities and implementing disease prevention and treatment programs.

    We also aim to improve the overall quality of life of the population by supporting and promoting economic growth and technical development.

    You can make a difference!
