Our Mission

Our Mission: Care, Research, Training

Academic health centers are uniquely situated to pursue the tri-partite mission of care, training and research, three components which are all essential for successfully addressing the short and long-term challenges of global health. Training (nearly 1,200 Kenyan and American medical students have participated in the program and thousands of Kenyan health care providers have been trained by AMPATH) and research (AMPATH researchers have published over 450 articles and attracted over $100 million in cumulative funding for AMPATH-related research projects from NIH, Gates Foundation, and other sources) are critical components of that effort, and we are dedicated to leading with care.

This mission of care, research, and training is embraced by institutions like Brown University's Alpert Medical School, Duke University, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Lehigh Valley Health Network, Providence Portland Medical Center, Purdue University, University of California-San Francisco, University of Massachusetts, University of Notre Dame, and University of Toronto who all have joined together with Indiana University as the AMPATH Consortium to partner with the Moi Hospital and University, allowing the Kenyan leaders to draw upon the resources and talents of North American academic health institutions to tackle the challenges of disease and poverty.
