West Africa


ICMDA's West Africa region covers the predominantly French-speaking countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, from Mauritania and Senegal in the West to Chad and Congo in the East.

There are 24 countries with eight having a fellowship affiliated with ICMDA. It is an area that has seen much growth recently, with five of the fellowships having joined at the 2018 World Congress.

450 million people live in the region, with over 200 million living in Nigeria alone - the most populous country in all Africa and seventh in the whole world.

There are 73 medical schools in West Africa, with only Nigeria, Cameroon and Ghana having more than two schools to choose from. On average there are only eight healthcare professionals for every 10,000 people

Large areas of West Africa have been Islamised, practicing an African brand of folk Islam and contain some of the most unreached people groups in the world. There remain political and economic challenges for most countries.
