Orbis and Amref Health Africa

Orbis and Amref Health Africa, two international health charities, have transformed their approach to tackling blinding trachoma by joining forces for the first time.

With both organisations being experts in different elements of a WHO-approved strategy to eliminate the disease, forging a partnership made clear programmatic sense.

Brought together by a mutual corporate supporter in 2012, Amref and Orbis have made a substantial progress in preventing trachoma from spreading, as well as reducing the backlog of patients living with this debilitating condition. In its inaugural year alone, the partnership has benefitted just short of 30,000 in Southern Ethiopia.
