Who We Are

Amref Health Africa is an African-led organization transforming African health from within Africa. We build up health systems and train local health workers to respond to the continent’s most critical health challenges: maternal and child health, infectious and non-communicable diseases, water and sanitation, and the lack of access to surgical and clinical services.

Run the TCS New York City Marathon

Amref Health Africa is proud to be an official charity partner of the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon which will take place on November 1, 2020.

If accepted to the team, you’ll receive guaranteed entry to the race!

In 2020, Team Amref will once again dedicate their 26.2 mile run to helping us improve women’s health throughout Africa. Team Amref will raise funds to support our work in making quality maternal care more accessible for women living in under-served communities.

Joining the team is on a first-come-first-served basis as we have limited amount of space available on the team, and you can help us provide thousands of women in Africa with quality maternal care AND run in the biggest, most exciting marathon in the world.
