About Us

About AMREF Health Africa

Amref Health Africa is a non-governmental organisation headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya and founded in 1957. Our vision is lasting health change in Africa. We began partnering with communities to improve health in Uganda in the mid-1980s, and set up an office in Kampala in 1987.


Amref Health Africa partners with the Uganda Ministry of Health, Ministry of Water, Ministry of Education and Sports and corporate and non-profit organisations to improve access to health services across the country.


Amref Health Africa’s seminal projects in Uganda were related to providing health services and education to communities and local institutions acutely affected by the detrimental effects of ongoing civil and political unrest.
