Mission + Vision
START WITH CARE. THEN DO MORE.
At AMPATH, we’ve found that helping people means so much more than medical treatment. It’s only when we combine care with nutrition and family support, education, counseling, insurance, jobs and financial independence, and self-sufficiency that we truly change lives for the better.
Ours is a partnership made up of organizations like Moi University and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kenya, Indiana University in North America, the Kenyan Government, the National Hospital Insurance Fund, and so many more.
Together, we start with healthcare for patients, and then do more to empower communities, educate tomorrow’s medical experts, and research breakthroughs that will truly change the health of the world.
HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Provide comprehensive and preventative care through a sustainable health system that reduces health disparities.
Educate medical students, residents, community health workers, and more, so the care system is continuously fed with tomorrow’s health leaders and institutions are mutually strengthened.
Advance research findings and push for new breakthroughs in health, policy, and justice for people all over the world.
MAKE QUALITY HEALTHCARE ACHIEVABLE AND SUSTAINABLE FOR ALL
By engaging in the delivery of health-promoting services to individuals and populations in low-income environments, AMPATH and its partners will build health systems in the public sector that:
- Deliver and sustain essential healthcare services
- Develop human capacity through training and education
- Advance research
- Eliminate health disparities
- Mutually strengthen institutions
A GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP TO ENSURE HEALTHCARE FOR ALL
Each day, we continue to build and strengthen an already global network of academic health centers collaborating with ministries of health in low-income countries to ensure essential healthcare for all people. And our model of partnership in Kenya is replicable for sustainable health systems around the world.
Our work has carved a path to systems that can sustain themselves and the health of an entire population through:
- Creating a seamless care system with electronic medical records
- Building community groups to support each other in gaining health and wealth
- Making health insurance accessible and affordable for all
Our hope? That one day all people, no matter where they live and what socioeconomic challenges they face, will have the health care they need and the resources to thrive in life.
