Amref Health Africa in Kenya

Amref Health Africa is a non-governmental organisation headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya and established in 1957. Our vision is Lasting Health Change in Kenya. Amref Health Africa in Kenya has operations in all 47 counties in the country. Building on six decades of experience and working closely with communities, county and national governments, and other stakeholders, we provide a broad range of services designed to strengthen health systems.

In line with the Amref Health Africa in Kenya’s Strategic Plan (2018-2022), our solutions are geared towards supporting a devolved system of government, addressing the needs of vulnerable populations especially women, children, and youth, and addressing the burden of infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases and maternal mortality.

The strategy is aligned to the Constitution of Kenya and the country’s Vision 2030. It seeks to support and spur Kenya’s movement towards attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals and is implemented under three pillars: training, health service delivery and healthcare financing.
