Founder's Corner

Dr Sylvia





I'm Dr Sylvia Kama-Kieghe, AskAwayHealth Founder, the creator of a healthcare platform of blogs, vlogs and other resources that provide clarity and direction about your health.


My training background is in family, community, and primary care medicine and I'm licensed to practice in the United Kingdom as a General Practitioner, and in Nigeria.

I work with a team of qualified medical and technology experts to look at how we can bridge the gaps in health awareness and understanding of health and disease - particularly in lower and middle income countries.


To this end, we use stories, blogs, videos, infograms to draw your attention and challenge you to invest in and make smart choices for your health.

What Qualifies Me to Do This?

  • Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) UK
  • Fellowship, Royal Society of Medicine (FRSM); and Royal Society of Public Health (FRSPH) UK
  • Diplomate of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (DRCOG) and the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (DFSRH), respectively, I also hold a Post-graduate Diploma in Mental Health practice from the University of Manchester UK
  • Urgent Care (Out Of Hours) Clinician and Supervisor
  • General Practice Examiner

In recognition of my work within the National Health Service (NHS), England I received an award for “outstanding contributions” to healthcare, in celebration of the NHS at 70, from the Nigerian Healthcare Professionals UK (NHCPUK) in 2019.

I am an alumnus of the African Women's Entrepreneurship Cooperative (AWEC) Fellowship Programme in leadership and enterprise, having been a member of the pioneer class of 200 female African entrepreneurs that completed a 12-month intensive programme in 2019. I am also a Cherie Blair Women in Business Mentor program alumnus.

I'm Giving Back

When you're blessed, and have received something of value - share it out.

You've found the page where I share thoughts and experience about anything health care related.

I firmly believe that our world can be a much better place when each of us share with others our best selves.

This is part of my little contribution to positively impact individuals, families and communities.

I hope that you can benefit from it.

What gets me up in the morning? I ask myself: "What can I do to be the best version of me today"?
