About Amref Health Africa in Canada
Since 1957, Amref Health Africa (formerly AMREF – the African Medical and Research Foundation), an international African organization in health, has been working with the most isolated African communities to achieve lasting health change.
We believe that the power to transform Africa’s health lies within her communities. Amref Health Africa works side by side with the people of these communities to build the knowledge, skills and means to transform their health, laying foundations that will be felt for generations to come.
Amref Health Africa supports those at the heart of the communities, particularly women and children, to bring about lasting health improvement. Simply put, transforming Africa’s health from within.
