Amref trains local health workers and provides health services to meet the continent’s dynamic and critical health needs. Today, there are about 2 doctors and 9 nurses available for every 10,000 people through sub-Saharan Africa. Additionally, about 200,000 women in Africa die every year during pregnancy and childbirth from preventable causes. We believe change must come from the communities themselves.
