About Us

CTC (“Cape -to-Cairo”) Health Consultants is an Africa focused, independent, physician owned and operated organization that a wide range of healthcare delivery and related consultative services inclusive of

CTC Heath Consultants is dedicated to providing premium healthcare services to the human resource constrained, rapidly evolving nations of Africa, the so-called “African Lions”.

Our relationships provide access to an unparalleled, extensive network of medical, nursing and healthcare industry professionals in Africa and the diaspora.

The CTC Heath Consultants service delivery model is based on a distributed platform consisting of highly qualified experienced diaspora and expatriate, physicians, and surgeons, nursing and allied health personnel synergized with local healthcare talent pools to deliver services in well resourced, well – appointed clinics, diagnostic facilities, clinics and hospitals. This is a mixed (locum tenens, resident, relocation), full-time or part-time staffing model providing comprehensive manpower to deliver care at the point of service. We provide onsite, telemedicine, training and consulting services.

While our assets are intellectual, not bricks and mortar or equipment, our knowledge and experience are the key driver for our consultative services which are indispensable for the proper procurement of the facilities and equipment to deliver high-quality healthcare.

In summary, CTC Heath Consultants delivers world-class standard clinical care within a culture of professional responsibility, leveraged by the core competencies of healthcare strategic planning, operations management and care delivery.

Our Leadership

Our leadership team has a combined 120-year deep healthcare industry experience in Africa, the United States of America and UK, with training at leading medical institutions in Africa, the USA and the UK, for example the Universities of Ibadan, Ife, Benin, Harvard, Emory, London, Columbia, Yale and Cornell. They have held, and continue to hold senior level clinical, academic and management positions in the diaspora and Africa.

Our Assets

Our major asset is the critically constrained human resource capital (i.e. exceptionally well trained, experienced physicians and surgeons) that is severely deficient in these nations, essential to deliver world-class care, consistent with standards in the developed world.

Our practitioners have been trained in and have worked most of their careers in the developed world; however, their origins and long-standing links to sub-Saharan Africa provide them with a key leverage – an understanding of the language, customs and culture of the region making assimilation and delivery of care to those populations seamless. Delivery of care to patients by physicians who understand them, their countries and their culture has been shown to be a valuable component of effective and efficient health care delivery. We believe this provides us with a tremendous market advantage.

What problems does our solution address?

Over the last 30 years there has been a disastrous intractable departure of physician manpower from virtually all the nations of sub-Saharan Africa in search of training and better economic conditions. This so-called “brain drain” has obviously deprived these countries of this critical resource. Their citizens are left with two options – medical tourism for the rare individuals who have the means or put up with suboptimal or worse yet no care at home. Both options are problematic for obvious reasons.

We intend to use our solution to:

  • Provide world-class care domestically in sub-Saharan Africa, eliminating the need for more expensive and disruptive medical tourism, which alienates the patient from their supportive structures (family and socio-cultural) during illness, precisely when they need it most. Medical tourism does not guarantee appropriate care since the patients and their local referring physicians rarely possess the knowledge or networks to assure success. Deliver critical, basic care from the bottom of the pyramid and beyond.
  • Reverse or bend the curves of the “brain drain” by importing and “re-integrating” the lost generation.
  • Satisfy the need of diaspora physicians to reconnect with family and friends and if they desire
