About AMREF Flying Doctors


AMREF Flying Doctors is part of the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF) and was established in 1957. Since then, Flying Doctors have been involved in many health care projects in East Africa, one of them being the Air Ambulance Services.


AMREF Flying Doctors provides air evacuation service in medical emergencies as well as air ambulance transfers between medical facilities.


AMREF Flying Doctors operates 24 hours/day, 365 days of the year. As a vital link between remote areas and AMREF’s Control Centre at the Wilson Airport in Nairobi, AMREF has established a radio network that comprises over 100 HF radio stations spread across East Africa, making it the largest two-way radio network in Africa.


Full time medical staff and aircrew are on standby to respond to emergencies.  Patients will be accompanied by an emergency physician and/or accompanied by a critical care nurse, depending on clinical need.  Physicians are experienced in emergency medicine and intensive care.  All the flight nurses have worked for several years in intensive care medicine, are certified in advanced life support and have longstanding aero-medical experience.


AMREF owns and operates its own fleet of aircraft which are airborne intensive care units, with modern medical equipment.


All income generated through AMREF Flying Doctors directly supports the Flying Doctors Charitable “Outreach” programme which serves rural African communities by providing medical specialist services free of charge.
