The African Mission Healthcare Foundation believes strong institutions are required to meet Africa's health challenges. For this reason, we work with on-the-ground health providers in the church and faith-based sector to improve their ability to respond to a range of diseases. We do not subscribe to a vertical, silo "disease-specific" model of support or care. We believe that by strengthening health systems broadly, the health sector will produce better outcomes and will be adequately prepared to tackle new problems.

Toward these goals, we identify capable partners and then listen to their needs. We engage in a collaborative dialogue regarding the best way to meet these needs. AMHF support falls broadly into three categories: infrastructure, training, and direct operational support.

AMHF Executive Director and co-founder Dr. Jon Fielder has served as a medical missionary in Kenya and Malawi since 2002. His clinical practice has included adult and pediatric medicine, consultation to surgeons, and oversight of HIV and tuberculosis care programs. He has traveled widely to teach. AMHF Director of Programs Jonathan Mwiindi has a background in pharmacy, health program management, and public health. He was instrumental to the scale-up of HIV care in Kenya through the mission health sector. Together, Dr. Fielder and Mr. Mwiindi have two decades of experience within the African mission health sector. AMHF's programs in Kenya and South Sudan are supported in collaboration with Hospital Support Organization, an audited implementing and monitoring non-governmental organization which also works closely with the faith-based health sector.

AMHF tracks the number of clients served by the support we provide; the number of trainees sponsored; and the quantitative amount given toward infrastructure and capital.

(1) Annually, AMHF support provides direct care to approximately 75,000 patient visits. In 2014, nearly 1,500 operative procedures will be supported. (2) From January to August 2014, 440 learners had started or completed the HIV/TB clinical training program in Kenya. (3) Three African surgeons currently receive sponsorship through the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons training program. (4) Twenty students enrolled in the Assistant Medical Officer training program in Arusha, Tanzania, in addition to 30 graduates. (5) 10 sponsored nursing students at Maua Methodist Hospital nursing school as of November (2014). (6) 12 graduates of South Sudanese Nurse Anesthesia training program at Kijabe Hospital, Kenya (Aug 2014), and three current students (Nov 2014). (7) 11 South Sudanese students enrolled in health professions, Kenya Methodist University (Nov 2014), (8) In 2013, $383,000 expended on capital and infrastructure projects.
