Monday June 29
Today, Gede's Managing Director, Mr John Minto, met with the CEO and Founder of Management Strategies for Africa (MSA), Mr Marc Okunnu. MSA is a leading UK based and diaspora led civil society organisation which supports capacity building health programmes in both Ghana and Nigeria. With deep ties to the professional Nigerian diaspora in Europe, MSA is well placed to work with Gede in order to address the mental health 'treatment gap' through the appropriate engagement of expertise within the UK initially. Working with other partners such as Medicine Africa, Gede and MSA are developing ways in which to link facility based Drs in Nigeria to diaspora experts through the use of an existing online training platform.
