2022 Highlights

2022 Highlights

As we head toward the end of 2022, we also come to the end of Amref’s global five-year strategy. In this period we have more than doubled the total amount spent on programmes in Africa which are strengthening health systems to bridge the gap between people and the healthcare they deserve.  

In 2022:

we ran
170
reaching
20,000,000
in
35

- through health worker training, improving health service delivery across a broad range of issues, and investment to progress towards Universal Health Coverage.

In the UK our 2022 highlights have set the path forward for an exciting 2023. They include:  

Expanding our strategic partnerships​ and launching new programmes, to ensure that more people in sub-Saharan Africa have access to high-quality health services:

Engaging our supporters​, sharing the impact of their valued support

We celebrated Amref’s 65th anniversary at an event with supporters and our President, and global CEO Dr Githinji Gitahi.

We participated in the Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise finds to help train midwives so that they can learn new skills and gain confidence to better support their communities. We raised an incredible £81,000 and shared the powerful story of Miriam Joseph and her midwife Hellen Hadia. A huge thank you to every who has supported this campaign, and our other Appeals through 2022.  

Engaging our supporters​, sharing the impact of their valued support

Staying true to our ethical storytelling commitment ​

We launched our Ethical Storytelling research with the University of the Arts London and the University of East Anglia – Who Owns the Story?. Along with the co-researchers and colleagues from Amref Kenya, we have presented this work at UK and international fundraising conferences and events to positive feedback and interesting discussion. We’re looking forward to the next phase of research. ​ 

Staying true to our ethical storytelling commitment ​

Driving change in global health, centring African voices and expertise ​ 

Dr Githinji Gitahi gave evidence at the UK House of Commons International Development Committee’s enquiry into Extreme Poverty and the Sustainable Development Goals; we spoke out in response to the political turmoil around UK Aid and on the International Development Strategy; and our own Steve Murigi starred on stage at the Bloomberg Live: Focus on Africa forum.
