1. About Amref Health Africa
Amref Health Africa was founded in 1957 and has since grown to become the largest African-based
international health development organisation; currently implementing more than 180 programmes,
reaching more than 40 million people across 35 African countries; and a staff complement of over
2,000. Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, Amref Health Africa has offices in ten countries in Africa –
Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Guinea (Conakry), Kenya, Malawi, Senegal, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda
and Zambia. An additional eleven advocacy and fundraising offices are located in Europe and North
Amref Health Africa is driven by its vision of ‘Lasting health change in Africa’ and its mission ‘To
catalyze and drive community-led and people-centred health systems while addressing social
determinants of health’. We believe that the power to transform Africa’s health lies within its
communities, and therefore strive to ensure that health systems are not only functional but that
communities are empowered to hold these systems accountable for the delivery of quality and affordable health care.

2. About The Role
The Programme Accountant will provide timely, accurate and efficient accounting, budgeting and
financial management support to the Learning for Life (L4L): Building a Resilient and Responsive
Health Workforce in line with Amref’s financial and relevant policies and guidelines, and with the
donor grant agreement and compliance guidelines. This is a 4-year programme in partnership with
the Mastercard Foundation that will be implemented in Kenya, Senegal and Zambia during this first
phase. The estimated ratio of health workers per population in Africa is 11.2 workers per 10,000
people, far below the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended ratio of 44.5.
It is estimated that the global shortage of health workers will increase from 12 to 18 million by 2030 – which translates to a shortage of six million health workers. Africa also has the world’s fastest growing population, which presents governments and policy makers with both opportunities and challenges to ensure sufficient livelihood opportunities for its young population. To address these challenges and accelerate the current Universal Health Coverage (UHC) gains, Amref is implementing this innovative, multi-country, multi-million dollar programme with the ultimate aim of contributing to increased and sustainable job creation within primary health care (PHC) sectors across Africa.
