Whether you are a person with Parkinson's disease, a carer, a medical professional, a partner organisation, a volunteer, a funder, or a supporter, we'd love to hear from you.

What we do
Parkinson's Africa exists to support and empower Africans impacted by Parkinson's disease (PD)—this includes the family, friends, relatives, carers, etc.—of those diagnosed.
We advocate on behalf of the Parkinson's community in Africa, fund, organize, and support awareness campaigns, provide appropriate educational materials in local languages on Parkinson's disease in Africa and how to effectively manage the condition, and offer support and activities. We help facilitate access to clinical services for people living with Parkinson's disease in Africa, and we intend to continue looking for ways to help achieve an equitable medication pathway for Parkinson's patients in Africa. This, of course, would not be possible to achieve without our invaluable partners.
If you are an African whose life has been impacted by Parkinson’s disease, you are at the centre of everything we do. You are the heartbeat of this organisation, and looking for ways to continuously support and empower you, your relatives, friends, loved ones, and community is the reason for our existence. We are family; it is as simple as that.
Within our organisation, we have people with personal experiences of living with, or caring for someone with, Parkinson’s disease in Africa. As such, we have a solid understanding of some of the unique challenges you may be facing on this journey. Everything we do is guided by our belief that no one should have to deal with these challenges alone and that everyone should have equitable access to Parkinson’s information, support, and healthcare resources that are necessary to making informed health choices and leading dignified lives.
