In December 2020, Amref Health Africa Italy and Comitato Collaborazione Medica (CCM) have merged in the Foundation Amref Health Africa – Comitato Collaborazione Medica (AHA-CCM), aimed at enhancing the impact and effectiveness of the interventions carried out by both, in Africa and in Italy. The Foundation builds upon the experience and expertise of the two health organizations that, for over 50 years, have been protecting and promoting the right to health with a global approach, to guarantee universal access to health services, with no disregard to people living in the most remote areas of Africa.
The AHA-CCM Foundation targets the poorest people in the world, operating in fragile and marginalized contexts, actively involving populations, local staff, and public health systems, with the aim of achieving long-term improvements and having in mind a single vision: a world in which health is a universally recognized right, exercised, and guaranteed in a fair and long-lasting way.
The Foundation is already registered in South Sudan where, building on the previous experience of CCM, it is now conducting several interventions in the country. AHA-CCM is currently leading agency for 2 HPF lots (19 and 6) in supporting local health institutions to manage: a) 2 Hospitals and 21 among Primary Health Care Centers (PHCCs) and Primary Health Care Units (PHCUs) in 2 counties in Warrap State; and 1 Hospital and 44 among PHCCs and PHCUs in Kapoeta North, East and South. This in order to improve primary and secondary health care services and contribute to meet the MoH priority targets, according to the national health strategies. AHA-CCM is also responsible for the management of the Mother Teresa Hospital in Turalei (Twic County) within Lot 18.
Finally, AHA-CCM is also the leading agency for UNICEF in Greater Tonj focusing on the treatment of SAM and MAM as well as for the Target Supplementary Feeding Programme for WFP.
Additionally, the current political situation of South Sudan has recently determined a high number of IDPs and refugees. Amref-CCM is committed to (i) ensure the emergency response to the current humanitarian crisis; and (ii) preserve the already fragile health system from a possible deterioration and collapse due to the humanitarian crisis.
