This article discusses what the author's project for the Nieman Foundation's global health fellowship will be about. Given Africa's continuously rising mortality rates, he aims to discuss what triggered the continent's health crisis. He seeks to bring to his stories the views of people from the scientific, academic and technical communities to evaluate Africa's place in global health. He intends to narrate the perspectives of global health organizations about what has gone wrong in Africa's health system. He plans to interconnect the voices of the poor with the thinking of global health leaders in a search for answers to questions concerning what solutions might emerge to address the crisis.
