Leap, the mHealth platform

Since 2013, Amref Health Africa has worked with a public private partnership (Accenture, M-Pesa Foundation, Safaricom, Vodafone (Mezzanine) and the Government of Kenya) to develop a sustainable and scalable mobile learning (mLearning) academy for health workers across Africa.


This was through the Health Enablement and Learning Platform (HELP) Project that has to date successfully trained over 3,000 Community Health Workers (CHWs) in Kenya, drawn from urban, rural and nomadic sites. mLearning complements initial face to face training, enabling the CHWs to learn at their own pace, at their own time using their own mobile devices while in their communities.

We deliver approved Ministry of Health curricula and more, through a combination of text and audio messages, making it accessible through basic mobile phones.

HELP, the trusted learning solution, has now rebranded to Leap, a mHealth platform designed in Africa for Africa. We aim to be the go-to solution for health worker training in Africa and beyond!


• Leap comes with leading accredited healthcare training content and is customisable to unique training demands.

• We offer space for learners to exchange knowledge with peers and an unprecedented way to keep learners engaged.

• We offer world class healthcare training directly to people’s pockets, at the touch of a button.

Leap empowers organisations and health workers to transform the health outcomes of communities they serve. Partner with us in your programmes and services to build Africa’s first fully integrated mobile community health platform accelerating the path to empowering a million CHWs and strengthening community health systems.
