Formations Sans Frontières – International Health Care Education (FSF-IHCE) was officially created in 2004 – with its head office (HQ) – is in Lyon.
Association law 1901 – Officially recognized by the World Health Organization (OMS / WHO) in 2005 – by the former regional office of the Rhône-Alpes region.

Despite the positive economic growth that many African nations have seen over the previous years, many of them still suffer from pervasive poverty and inequality. In addition, its health and education outcomes are among the worst in the world.
Weak institutions make dealing with calamities like the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic, Ebola crisis or the severe drought affecting numerous nations a challenging factor, especially in unstable economies. Youth and women unemployment and underemployment jeopardize social stability and growth. These factors, together with the mixed impacts of restricted access to high-quality education, health care, technology and innovation, are obstacles to Africa’s growth and entry into higher-value-added industry and competitiveness.
FSF-IHCE Africa’s objective is to ensure that Africa’s population increase leads to long-term development via education and training.
In order to scale innovative solutions to speed job creation in Africa, we seek to work with other organizations to advance our core mandate of education and training in health care, agriculture, security, and ICT.
FSF-IHCE Africa encourage collaboration with institutions that provide basic services, notably in education and training, as well as health systems, in nations and populations most vulnerable to epidemics, conflicts, and natural catastrophes.
