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. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we focus on stopping the spread of the virus and helping to roll out the vaccine to communities in Africa.
