IU-Kenya Partnership

In 1989, Indiana University School of Medicine and Moi School of Medicine joined together to train a new generation of leaders in healthcare for the United States and for Africa. The exchange program, the IU-Kenya Partnership, eventually turned into one of the largest and most comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa. This program, called the Academic Model for the Prevention and Treatment of HIV/AIDS (AMPATH), secured a grant from USAID and now treats over 100,000 HIV/AIDS patients.

In 2008, AMPATH updated to become the Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare. The creators of the model recognized the depth of the impact the disease has on individuals, families, and communities and so built a model to address nearly every aspect of the patient’s lives including:

  • HIV/AIDS control
  • Primary Care/Disease management
  • Maternal/Child Health
  • Sally Test Pediatric Center
  • Education
  • Research
  • Medical Record Systems
  • Orphans and Vulnerable Children
  • Health at Home
  • Family Preservation Initiative
  • Agricultural Program
  • Imani Workshops
  • Safe Water Initiative
  • Legal Aid Center of Eldoret
