Africa Medical Partnership Fund
The African Medical Partnership (AfriMed) is a UK based non governmental, secular aid organisation which was established in 2003. Our aim is to close the gaps in Africa's medical know-how by sharing knowledge, skills and providing the resources to 'make better health happen' for everybody in Africa - especially the poor and needy. We believe in building real and equitable partnerships for sustainable improvement in health care We believe that “the hand that receives is never beneath the hand that gives.” AfriMed facilitates, in partnership with the host country, the transfer of skills and technologies to empower their country’s healthcare professionals to sustainably improve healthcare services, particularly for the vulnerable members of the society. Our aims are: To help empower local medical professionals in Africa to make sustainable and lasting improvements in their healthcare services through the transfer of skills, knowledge and technology from developed countries. To give training and develop standards of best medical practice for all fields of medicine in our partner countries. To develop a resources programme to provide facilities, equipment and materials to underpin the training programmes.
