GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP THAT MAKES A GLOBAL IMPACT.

Our organization is built on working together at every single level, and relationships across the world in Kenya and North America only help elevate our work and its impact.

VISION

A vibrant, world-class, Kenyan-led community of researchers engaged in the continuous improvement of health globally.

MISSION

Guided by the principle of leading with care, we work in partnership to develop local research talent and to identify, develop and disseminate relevant and timely information to improve the health of underserved populations.

VALUES

In our work, we will embrace:

•             Service with humility

•             A spirit of collaboration and partnership

•             Integrity in relationships

•             Mutual respect and mutual benefit in organizational partnerships

•             Efforts to eliminate health disparities

•             A sustainable infrastructure for research

GOALS

By 2022, we will:

  1. Strengthen development of a well-resourced and sustainable infrastructure for research that enables the efficient conduct of high-quality research.

  2. Increase the number of successful independent investigators working in collaborative, interdisciplinary research teams by providing better access to high-quality training and mentorship.

  3. Enhance supportive, research-intensive cultures within the schools and departments of all AMPATH partners.

  4. Accelerate growth in relevant, high-yield research initiatives that will improve policy and strengthen the health systems and communities we serve including biomedical innovations, health economics/equity, population health, informatics, and implementation science research.

  5. Incorporate research into ongoing efforts to expand AMPATH innovations to additional underserved populations outside Kenya.
