BUILDING CAPACITY FOR CANCER CARE IN KENYA.

Cancer is projected to become the leading cause of death in sub-Saharan Africa, but as recently as a decade ago, there were no cancer treatment options available in western Kenya.

The AMPATH Oncology Institute was formed in 2008 to combat this trend, and has built a system of cancer treatment and prevention. In 2016, we opened the Chandria Cancer and Chronic Disease Centre at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kenya, which serves as a learning institute to train the next generation of Kenyan caregivers, and provides a home for robust research and care.

We’ve also assisted the Kenyan Ministry of Health in drafting the Kenya National Cancer Control Strategy, which helps formulate national health policies, solutions to current national health problems, and plans for health professional training.
