AMREF’s Outreach Programme has been running since AMREF Flying Doctors were formed, when the founders started taking specialised health care to the most rural, remote and disadvantaged communities in the region.
From four hospitals in 1967, the Outreach Programme today serves 150 hospitals in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Somalia and Southern Sudan through 3 – 5 day visits.
Health clinics and hospitals in these rural areas support hundreds of people living in remote villages. The Outreach Programme is the most effective way of reaching a high number of patients and at the same time supervise, teach and to support the morale of the local staff who are responsible for community health in the area.
The Outreach Programme and Charity Evacuations are possible from unused funds from our subscriptions schemes.
