AMREF's mission is to empower the people of Africa, through better health, to escape poverty and improve the quality of their lives. The stories of disaster in Africa are all too familiar. However, behind the news headlines there are millions of Africans who are working tirelessly to take control of their health and their lives and, with help from organizations like the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF), they are succeeding.
AMREF is the largest non-governmental health development organization based in Africa. They manage a full range of medical and public health programs focused on the most vulnerable populations-women and children-and the most critical health issues facing the African continent today:
- HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis
- Clean water and sanitation
- Family health
- Training health workers
- Clinical and surgical outreach
As an Africa-based organization, they understand that, to achieve lasting provision of health services on the continent, it is essential to build up local health systems.
AMREF is planting the seeds of local and accessible health care, and those seeds take root best when they are planted by fellow Africans. That's why 97% of their employees are African. Their projects are sensitive to local needs and customs, and because of this, communities trust us to develop health solutions that make them partners rather than beneficiaries only.
