Description

The African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF) is Africa's leading health development organisation, bringing good quality health care closer to those who need it most.

Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, AMREF is a truly African organisation whose vision is lasting health change in Africa. Founded in 1957 initially as the Flying Doctors Service of Kenya, AMREF provides health care to Africa's most marginalised and vulnerable communities in Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Tanzania and South Africa.

We believe that the power for this change lies within Africa's communities.

We ensure that communities have the knowledge, skills and means to maintain their good health and break the cycle of poor health and poverty.

We reach, respect and become part of communities and help them make change from within. We do this by:

- Supporting communities others cannot or do not reach

- Creating conditions for health, catalysing the hidden but real energies within communities

- Championing women who are at the heart of their family's and community's health
