Who we are

Our History

DatelineHealth Africa Inc., was incorporated as a nonprofit in the State of Delaware, USA in September 2002. Since then, our activities have focused on providing free digital access to timely, accurate and credible health information and solutions targeted at people and communities in Africa with the purpose of enhancing public health and social care generally. More recently, our leadership undertook major restructuring of our activities towards long term sustainability and definable social impact. This process is on-going.


We are a nimble organization with a structure that is made up of small teams:

Our Advisory Board is chaired by our founder and publisher, Akin Odutola, a physician and medical academic. The Board presently has six members that bring diverse expertise in support of our mission.

Our Management team is made up of five individuals with deep commitment to and understanding of the nonprofit and social enterperise worlds. The team is supported in its daily tasks by a wide variety of volunteers to whom we are especially grateful for their services. 

Our Champions or Ambassadors are invited individuals who have distinguished themselves in diverse fields of endeavors. They include celebrities, professionals, public servants, entrepreneurs, etc., across Africa and globally who identify with our mission and support us in various ways to promote and achieve it.


We are committed to the following Vision, Mission and Goals:

Our Vision is to advance health and wellbeing in people and communities across Africa generally.
