Through Community Jameel, the Jameel family has a long-standing, philanthropic, heritage of harnessing the power of technologies to transform healthcare for all. And today, we are continuing to expand this commitment to improving the health and well being of vulnerable people around the world.
Creating Abdul Latif Jameel Health, we will focus on accelerating access to modern medical care while addressing unmet medical needs in developing markets around the world.

With the ambition to become a leading global medi-tech distribution company, we leverage the latest advances to unlock access to affordable healthcare in the Middle East, Africa, South and South East Asia, Japan and China.
With economic globalization, the inequality between richer and poorer countries appears to be growing, and in every corner of our planet, whole communities are denied access to the most basic human need – healthcare.
We believe that access should be a basic human right. An individual's birthplace, proximity to infrastructure or lack of wealth should not deny that access, and yet for whole communities, this is the everyday reality.
As part of the Jameel family philanthropy's successful ongoing partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Community Jameel co-founded the Abdul Latif Jameel Clinic for Machine Learning in Health (Jameel Clinic) to drive research at the intersection of computer science and biology, commercializing new technologies to deliver them to the frontline medical practitioners.
Community Jameel also partnered with Imperial College London to co-found The Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics (Jameel Institute) underlining our commitment to sharing best practice among global health researchers and experts in data analytics, epidemiology, and economics to combat threats from disease around the world.

“Improving access to healthcare is a complex puzzle requiring a deep understanding of both needs and solutions - including: technology, infrastructure, distribution.
Addressing these issues has proved to be one of society’s biggest challenges. But now more than ever, we have the technology and expertise to start making real progress. And I’m hugely excited by the opportunities ahead.”
