The Afro Health Link platform aims to bring personalized evidenced based health information to users giving them the tools and resources to better manage their health and prevent complications from diseases. With adequate knowledge about their medical conditions, users of the platform will be more engaged and are able to make informed decisions about their healthcare.

At this initial launch, the Afro Health Link platform provides basic health information around medical conditions that individuals face, giving them the opportunity to discuss these challenges as well as helping them find solutions to overcome them. Afro Health Link addresses six medical conditions using evidenced based information in print and video and encourage users to engage in conversations around them.

  •     Diabetes,
  •     Heart Disease,
  •     High Blood Pressure,
  •     Breast Cancer,
  •     Prostate Cancer,
  •     HIV

The Afro Health Link Platform will expand to other medical conditions as the platform grows. Resources available on the platform include:

  •     Promising articles on medical advancements
  •     Healthy Heart Recipes
  •     Health Advice & Tips for Health Living

Additionally, Users have the ability to:

  •     Locate culturally competent providers
  •     Share success stories via discussions
  •     Pose health questions to providers
  •     Find community resources available to users
  •     Get Up-to-date actionable information on research findings and available clinical trials

The next phase of launch will include the Personalized Health Navigator that incorporates both the physical and psycho-social traits of an individual while presenting Health Information, Health Resources and Guidance to manage their medical condition.

The uniqueness of the Personalized Health Navigator is that it understands the needs of the user and guides the user to get the most of the content based on their profile, updating its content as new information is introduced to the platform. This navigator will also guide the users through the complex health systems showing them health services that are available to them, health experts in their region and access to other resources available in their community to help improve their health or prevent complications. In addition, the user can query the platform for additional information and review results and save searches.

Initially we are launching in the United States (Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC) but will expand resources to other parts of the States. Nigeria and South Africa web platforms are accessible at the web site. For those countries not included we welcome you to join the Global Link.

Please visit AFROHEALTHLINK and complete the registration and utilize this interactive resource center to manage your medical condition.
