Through advocacy and capacity strengthening, AMSHeR promotes non-discrimination, particularly discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and advances access to quality health services for MSM/LGBT individuals in Africa..

AMSHeR works towards achieving its mission of “a healthy and empowered LGBT community in Africa and human rights for all”. .
