The Business Plan is structured around seven proirity areas based on AMREF's 2007 - 2017 Strategy, agreed upon health priorities and anticipated needs over the next three years. Five strategic directions are related to delivering health outcomes, the sixth addresses reach and innovation and the seventh outlines organisational restructuring required to enable AMREF to implement its health priorities.
Many of the health activities flowing from these strategic directions already exist within AMREF's current programmes. However, to ensure consistent, focused, high quality service delivery including the potential for scaling up, priority is being given to activities that positively impact the health of women and children and fall within AMREF's expertise and resources.
The Seven Strategic Directions
- Making pregnancy safe and expanding reproductive health
- Reducing morbidity and mortality among children
- Scaling up HIV, TB and malaria responses
- Prevention and control of diseases related to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
- Increasing access by disadvantaged communities to quality medical, surgical and diagnostic services
- Developing a strong research and innovation base to contribute to health improvement in Africa
- Creating a strong, unified, global AMREF
Note: Capacity Building is overeaching and crosscutting in the 7 Strategic Directions
