Amref Health Africa

Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the health of people in Africa by partnering with and empowering communities, and strengthening health systems.


About Us

Amref Health Africa was originally founded in 1957 as the Flying Doctors of East Africa, and was staffed by doctors who flew light aircraft to bring emergency health care to remote areas throughout the continent. Our work is now focused on training health workers at all levels and strengthening community health systems to respond to Africa's worst health challenges: maternal health, child health, HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria and other infectious diseases, water and sanitation, surgical and diagnostic outreach, and health worker training. Our approach is community-based and makes the people we reach partners, rather than just beneficiaries. We use African solutions to tackle critical African health challenges with African expertise. Over 90% of our staff working on the ground is African.
