Description:

About Amref Health Africa (@AmrefUSA) Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya and with more than 55 years of experience, Amref Health Africa is the leading African public health organization. Recipients of both the Bill and Melinda Gates Award for Global Health and the Hilton Humanitarian Prize, Amref Health Africa partners with communities to improve health. Amref Health Africa tackles some of the most critical health challenges facing the continent: maternal and child care, HIV, TB and malaria, clean water and sanitation, and surgical and clinical outreach. Women and children are disproportionately affected by the lack of safe water and sanitation. Women and children walk on average 3.5 miles each day to get what is often untreated water. This commute - 15 hours per week - prevents them from attending class and/or pursuing income-producing activities. Lack of adequate sanitation facilities at schools results in lower levels of attendance among girls in particular, perpetuating cycles of gender inequality and poverty. There are many ways to donate and help provide better health for Africans.
