OUR MISSION, VISION AND VALUES
TRANSFORMING LOCAL HEALTH WORKFORCES FOR SUSTAINABLE IMPACT
With more than 25% of the global burden of disease, but only 3% of the world’s health workers, people are falling through the cracks across Africa. Mothers are missing out on care during pregnancy and delivery, and too often, HIV patients are not receiving the support they deserve.
Despite laudable gains in many countries, health systems in sub-Saharan Africa continue to experience a shortage of health workers, as well as quality training resources. When human capacity falls short, gaps in the delivery of life-saving health services grow wider.
Alliance for Healthy Communities is a non-governmental organization working to fill these critical gaps in health services, while addressing the root-causes of sub-Saharan Africa’s quality health workforce shortage through capacity building, evaluation and collaborative partnerships.

AHC strives to achieve a healthier and more equitable world, free of health disparities. Our interventions aim to build local capacity by giving health workforces and communities the tools they need to thrive and create sustainable change.
Our vision is a world where health workforces are empowered to sustainably and equitably improve the health and welfare of their communities.
