We’re an international collective of software engineers and data scientists working to help harmonise the world’s health data.

Who are we

“Noun fjelltopp m (definite singular fjelltoppen, indefinite plural fjelltopper, definite plural fjelltoppene)

A mountaintop or mountain peak”

We’re called Fjelltopp because of our love of mountaineering and what it means to us. Getting to the peak of the mountain, the “fjelltopp”, is hard work. It requires navigation, problem solving, determination, mental and physical stamina. It’s easier to navigate around the mountains, but that’s not what we’re here for. We’re here to take the challenging route to the top. To get the best view, to reveal new challenges and to and understand the landscape we travel more completely.

We’re all personally connected to the sense of striving for higher ground, for deeper insight, for purpose. We put this energy into every area of our work, using specialist experience to integrate, manage and comprehend the most challenging aspects to public health data helping to make the world a better place.

Since 2015 we’ve worked with UN field experts including WHO, UNICEF, UNAIDS, FAO, Ministries of Health, and other local partners across the globe. As an advocate of The Principles for Digital Development, we seek to provide solutions that are sustainable, open-source, interoperable, and user-orientated. A company committed to ethical business and social mission before profit; we are registered as a Social Enterprise in the United Kingdom.

We have strong values attached to everything we do, every day:

  • Driven by social objectives

    We’re registered as a social enterprise in the UK, proving our commitment to reinvesting profit to fulfil our company objectives, because our primary motive is the positive impact of our work.

  • Technical excellence

    Our goal is to attract some of the world’s most skilled and qualified engineers and scientists to solve some of the world’s most important humanitarian challenges.

  • Openness

    Nearly all our solutions are open-source and built on other open-source solutions. This means they are freely accessible from the internet. We believe that access to our software should be free, so that our software can be used without paying big licence fees. It’s important to us that it stays this way.

  • Sustainability

    We work hard to make sure our solutions are sustainable. We know there’s no value in placing an unsustainable solution on an unprepared community. Partnering with our clients and user groups, we provide training, advice, mentoring and long-term support contracts to ensure the capacity to maintain our solutions for the long-term.
