With headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, Amref Health Africa is the largest Africa-based healthcare nonprofit, serving an average of nine million people per year across 35 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. We strengthen health systems and train African health workers to respond to the continent’s most critical health challenges: maternal and child health, noncommunicable and infectious disease (Cancer, Diabetes, HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, etc), access to clean water and sanitation, and surgical and clinical outreach. Our approach is community-based and makes the people we reach partners, rather than just beneficiaries. Over 97% of our global staff are Africans, so that we are always tackling African challenges with African expertise.
The Amref Health Africa in the USA office raises awareness and critically needed funds for our work in Africa. Amref Health Africa in the USA is registered with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (C)(3) organization and contributions to Amref Health Africa in the USA are tax deductible to the maximum extent permitted under the law.
