The Story of Said Ahmed: Licensee in Djibouti
Said Ahmed is a Djibouti citizen who first contacted A&K Global Health in October of 2014. Said’s sister-in-law was unable to find local treatment for her illness, which concerned the whole family. After a long time of searching, she was finally able to travel to Dubai and received treatment there.
Said initially learned about A&K Global Health in a newspaper article on medical tourism while he was traveling. He immediately reached out to A&K Global Health and communicated his concern for the state of Djibouti’s healthcare system, his brother’s story, and the lack of care for ailments that require specialists’ expertise. Said was aware that Djibouti’s Ministry of Health was already sending its citizens for treatment abroad and thought that if he could establish a local A&K Global Health office in Djibouti City, he could improve efficiency by leveraging the A&K Global Health network. He did not want any more families to go through the same stress and worry of not being able to find treatment that his family experienced.
After Mr. Ahmed completed the enrollment process with A&K Global Health, he traveled to Nairobi, Kenya to see firsthand how an A&K Global Health office operates. Said was able to meet A&K Global Health’s representatives and witness how individuals are prepared to travel abroad. Said’s entrepreneurial approach to business and his humanitarian mindset led him to be one of the first successful licensee of A&K Global Health. Said is now working as a liaison between Djibouti’s Ministry of Health and A&K Global Health facilitating medical travel abroad for Djibouti’s citizens.
