WE'RE FAR MORE IMPACTFUL TOGETHER.
AMPATH is a perfect example of what happens when people come together with a shared mission. Multiple North American academic institutions join together to make up the AMPATH Consortium, which in turn partners with the Moi University and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in western Kenya. Together, we exchange knowledge, share resources, train medical professionals, and expand our reach beyond patients to whole communities.
Moi University in Eldoret was established in 1984 as Kenya's second public university. Moi's College of Health Sciences includes robust Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Public Health and Dentistry. Students in the College of Health Sciences receive training in curative and preventative health, both through hospital-based medicine and in community-oriented approaches. Through partnership in AMPATH, Moi University students and residents work alongside their North American counterparts, both in Kenya and in North America.
MOI TEACHING AND REFERRAL HOSPITAL
As one of Kenya’s two public hospitals, Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital serves a population of approximately 24 million from western Kenya and neighboring countries, and is the setting where students and residents get practical, hands-on experience. The MTRH campus includes the AMPATH Centre and several specialty care buildings including:
- Chandaria Centre for Cancer and Chronic Diseases
- Riley Mother Baby Hospital
- Shoe4Africa Children’s Hospital
- Rafiki Center for Excellence in Adolescent Health
- Majaliwa Surgical Center
The AMPATH Consortium is a network of universities and academic health centers in high-income countries that aims to foster long-term, equitable partnerships with health centers and universities in low-income countries. Each institution brings their own perspective and provides its own opportunities for medical trainee exchange programs and hands-on education, both in Kenya and North America.
Indiana University leads the AMPATH Consortium.
KENYAN MINISTRY OF HEALTH
All of our resources go toward supporting the Kenyan Ministry of Health in their mission of improving health systems across 10 counties in Kenya. In our every deliberation, we partner to help Kenyans achieve health care, economic empowerment, education, and more.
Plus, we’ve joined forces with the National Hospital Insurance Fund to offer an affordable health insurance package to all Kenyans, particularly farmers, small business owners, etc.
