Amref Health Africa partners with communities in 35 countries to sustainably strengthen health systems and improve access to vital care and services.
Female genital mutilation or cutting (FGM/C), sometimes referred to as "the cut", involves the partial or total removal of external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. Together with grassroots activists, we work with practising communities across Africa to change attitudes towards the practice and keep girls from harm.
Health Worker Training
We strengthen health systems in a way that's sustainable by building the capacity of health workers at all levels: community health workers, clinical officers, nurses, midwives, and more.
Maternal, New-born and Child Health
Pregnancy and childbirth are the biggest threats to the lives of women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa. We work with women, girls and entire communities to ensure that more women can give birth safely and with dignity - ensuring that every child has the best possible start in life.
Sexual and Reproductive Health
One of the challenges people living in sub-Saharan Africa face is access to sexual health and family planning education. We want to ensure communities have the information and options they need to have responsible, safe and satisfying sex lives.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
Securing the right to health also means creating the conditions in which good health can thrive. We provide access to clean drinking water and sanitation facilities in rural and urban communities, reducing the spread of water-related diseases.
