RESPONDING TO A CRISIS. THEN BUILDING A FUTURE.
Some of our first and most vital tasks in Kenya were in response to the HIV & AIDS pandemic. But right from the beginning, we knew the true needs of the community were so much larger, and expanded our efforts to serve not just patients, but an entire population.
Today, AMPATH provides not only treatment and care, but also programs that help patients take hold of their economic independence and their futures. And AMPATH's training, technology, and research go beyond Kenya to serve the whole world.
We serve an entire community, not just patients and individuals
Medical professionals and community health workers trained
1st sustainable care system
Kenya's first system of sustainable care and empowerment for an entire population
ONE OF AFRICA'S LARGEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE RESPONSES TO HIV & AIDS.
After more than 17 years fighting the HIV pandemic in Kenya, we’ve created more and more expansive testing, treatment, and prevention programs to respond to and get in front of HIV and AIDS.
160,000 HIV & AIDS patients in AMPATH care
Mother-to-child transmission rate lowered to 4.2%
1 million+ patients reached through home-based testing
EMPOWERING KENYANS TO GROW THEIR OWN STABLE FUTURES.
We realize that sustainable health and economic independence go hand-in-hand – one can’t exist without the other. That’s why beyond treatment, AMPATH counselors and community workers help Kenyans learn trades and techniques that they can turn into self-sustaining livelihoods.
30,000 group members received training and support for income generation
20,000 metric tons of food sold by 85 farmer groups
$5 million+ mobilized through savings and loans programs
REAL-TIME MEDICAL RECORDS SYSTEMS.
Truly sustainable health depends on a strong care system. Our real-time electronic medical records (OpenMRS) and decision support not only improve care in the moment, but also increase patient retention and follow-up.
26 major AMPATH sites using digital records
Over 220,000 patients registered in the electronic system
1 million+ patient encounters logged so far
HANDS-ON TRAINING FOR MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS — FROM COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS TO DOCTORS.
It’s not enough to provide care for the people who need it today; we have to plan for tomorrow. That’s why we’re constantly sharing expertise and training the new leaders in Kenyan healthcare. Our medical exchange program gives Kenyan and North American medical students and residents an experience unlike any other. And our outreach extends to provide training to non-physicians, social workers, counselors, and volunteers, who play an important role in holistic, sustainable care.
1,600+ medical students and residents trained
Thousands of AMPATH doctors trained
1,000+ community health workers trained
