Africa Health and Development International (AHADI) is a non-governmental organisation registered in Kenya in 2003. The organisation utilizes culture and the arts to promote healthy living, inculcate leadership values and fight for the rights of the poor, women and children.

We integrate African cultures to our information communication and educational component to provide lasting and sustainable solutions to these challenges.

At AHADI, we believe that the solution to Africa’s poverty, starvation, famine, disease, HIV/AIDS and environmental degradation lies with the communities most affected. We strive to empower communities and families to realise their collective and individual efficacy to positively influence their lives and that of their community through lobbying, advocacy and making informed choices both at a personal and community level.

Building a better tomorrow

We promote health, good governance, and better quality of life for all

We conduct advocacy, behaviour change and transformative leadership for social change training activities in Africa, Asia, Central America and the Caribbean Islands.

We have close relationships with the media, community based organizations as well as some international partners such as the UNFPA and the Rockefeller Foundation.

AHADI has expertise in behavior change communication and social marketing approaches for health. We provide technical assistance, offer workshops, and training to local institutions, as well as governmental and nongovernmental agencies.

AHADI continues to contribute to behaviour change communication, strategic communication, advocacy, transformative leadership for social change among other capabilities.
