About the Program

African people around the world have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. According to the COVID Tracking Project, African people make up 23% of the COVID-19 deaths in the US, despite only being 13% of the total population. 

In the UK, African people are up to 4 times as likely to die from COVID-19 complications as white people.

The generally poor health infrastructure throughout Africa leaves African people on the Continent incredibly vulnerable to any spread of the virus 

The Project Black Ankh COVID-19 Telehealth Program seeks to make a positive impact on the lives and health of African people everywhere by providing access to COVID-19 related information and education provided by our medical volunteers through educational guidelines from the CDC and WHO.  

All appointments are free and are staffed by licensed medical professionals. However, our PBA Telehealth Program does not offer our users access to medical treatment and should not be not be seen as a substitute for a relationship with your primary care physician. 

You can make an appointment if you have COVID-19 related questions and can connect to a video call via zoom. All appointments are booked in 30 minute time slots.

Do not make an appointment if you think you may have a medical emergency. In this case, please contact your primary care physician, go to the emergency department, or call 911.  All appointments are in Central Standard Time.
