I like to write about the children and families we care for in Kenya because putting names and faces on our work helps you to share in their stories and provides a window into the real issues in global health. And, it is important to me that more people hear their stories.  I am very cognizant of the privacy of our patients, though, and so the names that I use are not their real ones. I also change details of the stories so that you could not identify the person involved unless they have given me specific permission to use their real name or tell their exact story to a larger audience. The same is true for the photos. I only post photos that I have permission to share, and sometimes, the photo does not match the story. Nonetheless, these stories and these photos should give you a window into AMPATH's work in Kenya. Finally, the blog content does not constitute medical advice.
