Life-Changing Medical Care for the Hurting & Forgotten
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

For most Africans, basic clinical care is simply not available.

By clinical care, we mean what most people in developed countries would consider basic medical care available at a community hospital: intravenous antibiotics and oxygen for severe pneumonia; insulin for diabetes; a C-section for a complicated pregnancy; orthopedic surgery following a car accident; and many other routine medical conditions. Africa only performs 5% of the needed surgeries and requires 30 times as many surgical health workers at it currently has.

Only a few percent of African health facilities can deliver oxygen therapy. Less than half of African women who need a C-section get one. Trauma is a leading cause of death and disability but access to intensive care and orthopedic surgery is limited to a few centers in each country.

AMH Increasing Surgical Capacity

Surgical sponsorships are an important part of the solution.

13,000

surgeries sponsored by our Surgical Access for Everyone initiative since 2010.

Since launching our surgical sponsorship program more than 4 years ago. And over the past 8 years we have sponsored more than 600,000 direct patient visits.

Expanding surgical care for the hurting and forgotten takes effort and resources.

AMH is working to provide access to quality, compassionate surgical care to those who need our help most.In 2018, as part of the L’Chaim Initiative, we supported a new heart surgery training program in Kenya for young surgeons like Dr. Agneta Odera (pictured, left), and in 2019 we will help Tenwek Hospital construct a new heart surgery center, the first of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa.
