Amref Health Africa is one of the leading healthcare development agencies on the continent. Since 1957, we have been working with the most isolated African communities to achieve lasting health change in more than 35 countries.
Headquartered in Nairobi, we are a truly African organisation. This ethos defines our community-based approach and echoes across each and every one of our programmes and projects we deliver.
Amref Health Africa began as the Flying Doctors of East Africa, but today we deliver a range of preventative, community-based public health services. With a focus on women and children, we also manage a full range of health programmes that tackle some of the most critical challenges facing Africa today: HIV & TB, malaria, clean water, sanitation, and surgical and clinical outreach.
As Amref Health Africa has grown and evolved, so too has our commitment to strengthening the very foundation of public health systems. We believe that the power of lasting health change lies within its communities. That’s why we work side-by-side with the people living and working in those communities to build the knowledge, skills and means to transform their health.
Our work has won high-profile international awards such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Award for Global Health and the Conrad Hilton Humanitarian Award.
