Amref knows its way around
Over 60 years ago, Amref began in Kenya as “Flying Doctors.” Since then, Amref has expanded into an organisation that leads the way internationally when it comes to the preservation of health and disease prevention in Africa. Amref is an African organisation by origin, and almost all staff are African. They know the culture and traditions, and therefore they can cooperate effectively with the population. Amref is based not just on African needs, but more importantly on the power of Africans themselves – an approach that ensures sustainable improvement. Amref shares this experience globally with policy makers, health care providers and other development organisations.
What does Amref do?
Amref Health Africa/Amref Flying Doctors is committed to sustainable improvement of Africa’s health care systems. This means that Amref conducts programs targeting training of healthcare professionals in preventing and treating diseases such like malaria and AIDS but also maternal health care, water and sanitation, research. Amref also works with empowerment of vulnerable groups, such as young girls in eradicating female genital cutting, letting them finish school. And although it’s no longer the core activities, Amref still carry out medical flights into remote areas. During Africa Classic, you’ll visit various Amref projects AND have the opportunity to fly with the Flying Doctors.
