About us
Health is the key to a healthy word where people can grow and develop their skills. This is why Amref Health promotes health projects in the remote areas of Africa. Almost 60 years after its founding, Amref today is the largest African health organization operating in the continent.
The health of the world passes through Africa.
Since the beginning of its activity, Amref believes that health comes from the inside of local communities. It is through the active involvement of the populations, local staff and public health systems that we can realize long-term improvements. This is why the protagonists of change are the beneficiaries of the interventios and 97% of the staff working with Amref in africa is African. Because it’s up to Africans, every day, to take care of Africa.
Amref today operates in 26 countries in the south of the Sahara with 172 health promotion projects.
Amref brings out African solutions for African problems, solutions that come from the inside, from the heart of the communities, who are the protagonists and not just the beneficiaries of the projects.
Amref’s international network, as well as in Africa, is active in Europe, United States and Canada through 11 offices. Amref is present in Italy since 1987. Strong by experience within African communities, where health staff shortages and diseases are major and daily challenges, Amref also keeps a careful eye on the Italian reality. In a open and globalized world, the needs and rights do not stop in front of geographical border.
In Italy, since the ‘90s, Amref has been the first to launch the challenge of a positive communication about Africa, in order to highlight its potentialities and resources, and to consolidate the vision of “a land of solutions”, not just a land of problems.
