Episode 42: Impacting African Health on the Go with Nana Eyeson-Akiwowo Part 1

Greetings Glocal Citizens!

This week we meet Founder and President of African Health Now, Nana Eyeson-Akiwowo. AHN is a community-based organization that provides primary health care to women, children and families in Sub Saharan Africa. AHN was born out of a family crisis that opened her eyes the realities of the state of basic healthcare information and empowerment in African communities. While selecting models as the Bookings Editor for ESSENCE, Nana ’s father became ill back in Ghana. The support of the local community helped him get back on his feet and Nana was inspired to ensure communities across the continent received health care.

In the past 14 years, AHN has impacted more than 20,000 people with health fairs focused on awareness of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), chronic diseases and general health in Ghana and Nigeria. She has also become a serial entreprenuer with her new start-up which will launch in December 2020. Fourth Phase is her answer to the challenges women face in the period after birth, the fourth trimester and she is partnering with women owned businesses to create the box that literally is a life saver for women that would otherwise fo without in Africa; for each Fourth Phase box purchased, a women in an AHN partner facility in Africa also receives a box. Nana describes herself as a social entreprenuer, a dynamic special events professional, a project management specialist, a foodie and world traveler. A Brooklyn-bred Ghanaian, Nana is now based in New Jersey where she and her husband are raising their daughter.
