Amref Health Africa has nearly 60 years of experience in Africa, focused on building bridges between formal and informal health systems, between Ministries of Health and people living in rural communities, between the private and the public health sector. All to improve the health of people in Africa and to realize lasting health change.
In shared value partnerships with multinational organizations as Philips, GSK, Johnson & Johnson Amref proves its value. Amref gives private sector partners access to communities, in-depth knowledge of the pain points in African health systems, an extensive network of African and international stakeholders and a strong reputation.
Amref strongly believes that Africans are well positioned to find solutions to African challenges. We have experienced, for example with our own Flying Doctors social enterprise, the advantages of an entrepreneurial setting. To bring scalability and sustainability in our activities, an entrepreneurial and business approach is needed. From this background, we’ve initiated the Innovate for Life Fund, a social investment fund for African entrepreneurs in the health sector. With the fund, Amref will stimulate the development of home-grown innovations to improve the life and well-being of Africans.
