AMREF Health Africa

AMREF Health Africa

Is Africa’s largest International Health NGO. Founded in 1957 as the Flying Doctors of East Africa to provide critical health care to remote communities in East Africa.

The organisation has since grown to become the main African based International Organisation working in Health Development.   Amref Health Africa’s vision is for “lasting health change in Africa”: communities with:

  1. knowledge
  2. Skills 
  3. Means to maintain their good health and break the cycle of poor health and poverty

Amref Health Africa’s mission is to improve the health of people in Africa by partnering with and empowering communities, and strengthening health systems. With a focus on women and children, Amref Health Africa works with the most vulnerable African communities to achieve lasting health change. Amref Health Africa believes that the power to transform Africa’s health lies within its communities and works side by side with women and men in communities to build the knowledge, skills and means to transform their health, laying foundations that will be felt for generations to come.  Amref Health Africa ensures that health systems are functional and empower communities to play their role because they have the solutions to their problems. Since 2007 AMREF Kenya has been one of the implementers of a regional multi-site Nomadic Youth (10-24years) Reproductive Health Project which covers Kenya, Ethiopia, and Tanzania with funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs through AMREF Netherlands. The project now in its second phase as the Unite for Body Rights, covers Loitokitok Sub-County (district) and Magadi division in Kajiado County and targeting to reach at least 80,000 Kenyan youth with SRH information and services.
