What we do


AHPN influences policy through research, campaigning, lobbying and advocating. We ensure that the voices of Africans in the UK are represented in national health and wellbeing policies.



AHPN run various programmes throughout the year targeted at reducing health inequalities among the UKs African population. Most recently, AHPN ran a programme funded by Time to Change which aimed to tackle mental health stigma through working with churches and faith groups.



AHPN has a growing membership of over 200 mostly African community-based organisations who work at local, regional and national levels in the UK.



Our policy position is based on evidence, assessments and the contribution of the African HIV Research Forum, which the AHPN hosts.
Our other activities include a network of Africans living with and affected by HIV (Ffena), engaging with the media and faith work. Our work is always expanding; please explore the AHPN website for more.
