The Afro-European Medical and Research Network (AEMRN) is a non-governmental and not for profit organisation with a strong vision of helping to improve the quality of life for people living in low-income countries especially Sub-Saharan Africa.

This vision includes AEMRN serving as a knowledge network wherein active professionals from such disciplines as education, health, finance, engineering, international, non-governmental and faith-based organizations and civil society, can interact through virtual discussions to promote the exchange of skills, experience and expertise for addressing challenging issues in low-income countries.  In addition, regular virtual education sessions are offered to enable our proactive community to benefit from the knowledge and experience of experts around the world. 

We use simple low resolution technology to link individuals across countries willing to learn from each other and share their knowledge so that together we can address our challenges and improve the work that we do in our countries.   

AEMRN members strive to contribute their knowledge and experience to improve the quality of their work so that the people they interact with benefit from improved performance irrespective of race, creed, beliefs, faith and social affiliation.

Achieving the above goals needs effective team work to mobilise individuals across the world to share our vision and actively participate in our community.  Together we can through sharing knowledge strive to make a difference. We can acknowledge our successes and debate our challenges. Together we are a powerful force for change. But to be effective this process needs to certain extent to be planned as we must create opportunities for sharing experience, but at the same time we must find and share existing knowledge and resources.  We need to create a common strategy that improves access to information and much needed resources.
