“Together We Can”

We exist to promote health, good governance, and better quality of life for all specifically among the poor and disadvantaged in Africa, through information, education, communication and policy advocacy.

Our Mission

Africa Health and Development International (AHADI) was registered in Kenya in December 2003 as a non- governmental organisation (NGO) based in Nairobi.

The organisation works through the arts, media and culture and uses entertainment- education to improve the status of women and girls; foster reproductive and sexual health; enhance values based education; and promote sustainable development.

We work with communities, the media and development organizations and partners in Africa to motivate individuals and groups to make choices that have a bearing on health, including HIV/AIDS prevention, environmental protection, basic rights, good governance and sustainable development.
