About us

African Media and Malaria Research Network (AMMREN), was formed in November, 2006. It is a network of African journalists and scientists working together to reduce the burden of malaria in Africa.

AMMREN has over the years been actively involved in advocacy on malaria and related diseases on the continent. AMMREN is in Ghana, Burkina Faso, Gabon, Kenya, Senegal, Tanzania, Gambia, Malawi, Nigeria and Mozambique.


The Network has been able to fill the gap between information sharing and feedback on health outcomes to ensure that policy makers, communities and journalists work together to reduce the disease burden in Africa.

AMMREN has been able to:

  • Train over 300 African journalists and student journalist to report effectively on malaria and health in general.
  • Build the capacity of African journalists to design and implement malaria and health-related projects.
  • Create a platform for journalists and scientists to work together to eliminate malaria from Africa.
  • Commemorate World Malaria Day annually since 2007, carrying out sensitization programmes on malaria and distributing insecticide-treated bed nets.
  • Produce documentaries on malaria for broadcast globally.
  • Publish over 18 editions of its flagship magazine ‘Eyes on Malaria’ and circulated more than 10,000 copies globally. It is also online at
  • Expand its work beyond malaria and is also focusing on other diseases such as Ebola and lifestyle conditions under a new initiative, AMMREN – plus.
