Who We Are
Afya na Haki (Ahaki) is an African research and training institution that advances health, human rights and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).
Our aim is to co-create and front African solutions to African problems by engaging Africans on issues of health, human rights and SRHR We do this through generating evidence, building advocacy capacities and enabling strategic partnerships and collaborations, that embrace appreciative questioning and positive African narratives to determine how these intersect with the global agendas. Ahaki shifts the narrative from Africans being victims to that of agency – being able to engage in changing their own lives and realities.
Ahaki interprets Africentrism through the lens of
(i) positive African narratives;
(ii) engaging the African regional and sub-regional institutions like the African Union (AU), East African Community (EAC), Southern African Development Community (SADC), Africa Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) Inter-governmental Authority on Development (IGAD);
(iii) supporting and collaborating with African NGOs; and
(iv) engaging African experts and individuals on African perspectives with in global conversations on health, human rights, and the historical, social and political determinants of SRHR.
