AMREF's critical role in South Sudan
After 21 years of civil war health care in Southern Sudan was decimated, with very few trained health proessionals.
AMREF has worked in Southern Sudan since 1971, and is currently training health workers in Juba, Maridi, and Lui.
To date, AMREF has trained 80% of South Sudan's qualified health workers!

Like many sub-Saharan countries, Kenya is struggling with a critical shortage of qualified nurses.
AMREF helped the Nursing Council of Kenya to create a distance-learning curriculum to upgrade 20,000 nurses from certificate to registered level.
After completing the program, nurses are qualified to treat major diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria - and thus saving lives.
