About us

Who we are

ALIMA UK is part of an international umbrella organisation, The Alliance for International Medical Action (ALIMA), which carries out medical and humanitarian activities across Sub-Saharan Africa. ALIMA UK was founded specifically to support the medical programs ALIMA provides, through funding, partnerships and collaboration from within the UK. In doing so, ALIMA UK is helping to provide high-quality, free healthcare to some of the world's most disadvantaged populations, particularly those affected by conflict, natural disasters and epidemics.


More about ALIMA below: 


ALIMA is a humanitarian medical aid organisation created in 2009 by a group of highly experienced humanitarian aid workers. With offices in Dakar (Senegal) Paris, New York and now London, the organisation was established to fill the growing gap of unmet humanitarian needs in some of the most underserved areas of the world, particularly focusing on Sub-Saharan Africa.  


ALIMA currently operates 43 programs in 15 countries, all in some of the most neglected areas of the world. These include: Mali, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon, Guinea, Senegal, South Sudan, Mauritania.


The work we do: Malnutrition, Maternal Health, Primary and Secondary Health, Paediatrics, Malaria, Epidemics (Ebola, Cholera, Measles, Dengue, Lassa Fever, Covid-19), Hospitalisation, Emergencies, Gender Based Violence.


ALIMA’s effectiveness is based on three principles


Our unique alliance based model - We are an alliance between local and international actors (local health workers, national NGOs and ministries of health, international research institutes and funders); 


Our strong local roots - Our strong focus on working with and through local partners means that we are locally led. We harness the power of local medical talent, building capacity and working through communities to strengthen sustainable health systems. This model means we are also able to reach communities that are often inaccessible to other international NGOs. 


Our constant innovation to transform humanitarian medicine - 28% of ALIMA’s activities are dedicated to locally based research, with the research informing and being informed by our programmes.  The integral role that research plays means we have been able to successfully tackle major medical issues that have not been solved before, and in doing so have won prestigious awards for major medical advancements in treating malnutrition and Ebola and in providing innovative and effective patient care to remote communities.
