Basic Services (Health, Education, Water, Hygiene and Sanitation)

AAH-I is an important and well recognised player in Primary Heath Care (PHC), ensuring access to basic health care with strong community participation in very challenging and fragile environments during war, post conflict and re-construction. 


We partner with communities, governments and organisations to improve access to quality health services. Our work includes re-building and strengthening government health systems, training health workers and raising awareness through health education among target communities. We also support increased access to comprehensive primary health care services for refugees and IDPs affected by conflicts.


We work to improve quality, access and delivery of basic education and tertiary education for needy refugee students. We work with communities and other partners on interventions geared towards achieving better learning outcomes that include building and rehabilitating education infrastructure; provision of funds and learning materials to needy pupils and students, training teachers and school heads and capacity development of parent–teacher associations and school management committees.

Water, Hygiene and Sanitation (WASH)

We seek to improve access to safe, clean water for communities through protection of springs, installation of water harvesting systems in schools and health centres and rehabilitation of boreholes. AAH-I is also working with communities to promote hygiene and sanitation practices in partnership with health educators and promoters at the community level.
