Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) Programme

Outreach Services

Over the past six decades, Amref Health Africa in Kenya has supported outreach services where specialised health care services are provided to underserved and hard to reach communities. The Outreach Programme identifies gaps in health care systems, develops practical solutions and advocates for improved health care delivery.

Amref provides specialist medical and surgical services in partnership with county governments through the Amref Medical Specialists Consortium (AMSC). The Amref Medical Specialists’ Consortium aims to support county-led, needs-driven, affordable and reliable service delivery mechanism that can be implemented in the short and medium term to address challenges of lack of specialised medical services at the county level.

In addition to the above, the Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) programme seeks to:

  • Strengthen the capacity of health care systems to deliver quality clinical and diagnostic services to improve surveillance, prevention, treatment and care for HIV, TB, and related opportunistic diseases;
  • Strengthen community health systems
  • Provide support to the Ministry of Health in the roll out of Universal Health Coverage in Kenya
