I have the privilege of working in Kenya through AMPATH, a partnership that Indiana University established to revolutionize healthcare for people in some of the world's poorest places. Indiana University partners with Moi University in Kenya to demonstrate how global health can be improved through an academic partnership for clinical care, education, and research. My own work to improve HIV care for children in poor places is all done within the context of this partnership.

While we have a lot of sad and scary news coming out of Kenya this week, our 20+ year AMPATH partnership also has a lot of great successes that can be celebrated. Healthcare systems changed.  Lives saved. Lots of GOOD stories.

Every 3 years, our program holds a big gala event in Indianapolis to celebrate the work we are doing with our friends and supporters. If anyone who reads this blog wants to attend, I would LOVE to see you there. You can register at kenyagala.org
