The AMREF Flying Doctors provide medical care for the East African rural population by air. They rely on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 315 CDI for their land-based ambulance service.

Lack of personnel.

According to estimates by the World Health Organisation the health sector lacks more than four million skilled workers worldwide. The poorer the country, the greater the lack. Such as South Sudan, for example. 60,000 square kilometres and not one single doctor far and wide. Or in Western Africa, where the Ebola virus is running rampant. There is a lack of medical care. And the rural populace often has little trust in the methods of the few white doctors. Up to 80% of the African population lives in remote, rural regions. In extreme cases there is one small hospital for 500,000 people and skilled doctors are almost impossible to find. Things are different in the major cities. Healthcare and medical training are approaching Western standards.

AMREF Health Africa is one of the largest and most advanced non-state health organisations on the African continent.

With idealism and know-how.

AMREF (African Medical and Research Foundation) Health Africa is one of the largest and most advanced non-state health organisations on the African continent. The organisation has been working hard for more than 50 years to close this gap. With idealism, expertise and modern technology. Founded in 1957 in Kenya by three doctors, Michael Wood, Archibald McIndoe and Tom Rees, with the aim of bringing medical specialists to the region’s few temporary bush hospitals by plane, AMREF Health Africa now manages more than 100 different projects throughout the entire continent. It maintains offices in six African countries and employs roughly 900 people.

Every second can save human lives here.

Helping others to help themselves.

Then as now, the AMREF Flying Doctors form the heart of the organisation. They treat patients and train the locals. In an emergency, their aircraft transport them to the most remote areas of East Africa. As such, they are among the first who not only provided classical development support but also made use of modern technological achievements. Today they have access to 16 aircraft. However, the Flying Doctors are also perfectly equipped on land. Mercedes-Benz has been their reliable partner since 2012.
The doctors start and land the aircraft in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, the central node of the AMREF Flying Doctors. When transporting patients between the airport and the hospital they can always rely on three specifically customised Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 315 CDI vans. Every second can save human lives here. That is why the Sprinter serve as absolutely essential, mobile care units for the Flying Doctors in Nairobi’s chaotic traffic.
