28 - AMREF

Lasting health change in Africa.

HQ Location: Kenya

Aseeming rarity in today’s crowded public health field, AMREF is an African-led NGO focused on developing indigenous solutions to African health challenges. Founded in 1956 as part of a plan to provide mobile medical assistance to remote regions in the east of the continent, the organization has evolved into a multifaceted institutional actor working on a diverse range of health issues with over 100 poor and marginalized rural and urban slum communities – from HIV/AIDS and malaria, to water and sanitation, surgical outreach and practitioner training. Committed strongly to building the capacity of local health systems, AMREF has emerged as a pioneer in community-based health care, as well as a regional leader in maternal and child health.
