We are committed to improving the health of people in Africa by partnering with and empowering communities, and strengthening health systems.
Stand Up for African Mothers
 
Amref Health Africa has launched the Stand Up for African Mothers campaign to train more midwives, because midwives save lives. We estimate an Amref Health Africa-trained midwife can provide care to 500 mothers a year on average. With the campaign, Amref Health Africa strives to train 15,000 additional midwives to contribute to a reduction in maternal mortality by 25% in sub-Saharan Africa. project reportread updates from the field
Better Maternal Health for 500,000 Women in Africa
 
More than 250,000 women die each year in sub-Saharan Africa during pregnancy and childbirth due to a lack of basic medical care. Health workers, in particular, are desperately needed. AMREF is expanding its maternal health programs to help stop these needless deaths. Over the next 5 years, we will train 18,000 health workers that can save mothers lives, including 3,000 new midwives. We need your support to help ensure safer pregnancies and deliveries for women-at-risk in Africa! project reportread updates from the field
