AMREF Students on Study Tour @ Symbiosis

Amref Health Africa has over 54 years’ experience in health development. In 1957, three surgeons founded the Flying Doctors Service of East Africa, laying the foundation for what is now one of the continent’s leading health development and research organisations. Today, Amref Health Africa implements its projects through country programmes in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, Senegal, South Sudan and South Africa. Training and consulting support are provided to an additional 30 African countries.


Amref Health Africa believes that by focusing on the health of women and children, the health of the whole community can be improved. We are concerned with skilled care of mothers before, during and after childbirth; prevention and treatment of cervical cancer, and proper management of childhood illnesses. Our main areas of intervention are maternal and child health; HIV and Tuberculosis; safe water and sanitation; malaria; and essential clinical care.
Amref Health Africa shares knowledge gained from our grassroots programmes with others, and uses it as evidence to advocate appropriate change in health policy and practice. In all our programmes, Amref Health Africa partners with communities, civil society organisations, health practitioners, and the private and public sectors to establish a participatory health care system



 The students are here at SIHS to get exposure to Indian healthcare Systems.
