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.
