Who We Are

Amref has had a presence in Zambia over the past decades. Amref began partnering with communities to improve health in Zambia in the 1970s. Amref as the Flying Doctors of East Africa helped Zambia to establish the Zambia Flying Doctor Service. In the 1980s, Amref supported the Zambian government to conduct nationwide training of Clinical Officers (a middle-level cadre) and in the 1990s, Amref provided technical support to strengthen the country’s diagnostic and lab services on an outreach basis. Since 2017, Amref Health Africa is working nationwide in Zambia with a diverse range of communities in Zambia. Amref Zambia projects strategically target Sustainable Development Goal number 3 specifically to reduce maternal mortality (SDG 3.1) and reduce child mortality (SDG 3.2).
