What we do

AMECA support the delivery of sustainable healthcare initiatives in African countries, working in partnership with professionals, local organisations and local communities to ensure that these initiatives are focussed, relevant and sustainable over the long term.

Where we work

In Africa, we are currently working in Malawi. In the UK, AMECA support medical, nursing and physiotherapy students through the donation of final year Bursary Awards for elective placements in African countries.
