Indiana Institute for Global Health, Inc.

Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH) was created in 2001 in response to the HIV crisis in western Kenya. It is built on a partnership between Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and the Moi University School of Medicine in Eldoret, Kenya, and a consortium of North American academic health centers, led by Indiana University.

Improving Mental Health Care in Kenya
 
75% of those affected with mental health disorders in low-income countries do not have access to the treatment they need. In Kenya, too frequently mental illness is diagnosed as cerebral malaria or witchcraft by health care providers and lay people alike. Further, there are fewer than 100 psychiatrists for the 40 million Kenyans. This project aims to help improve access to quality mental health care by providing training opportunities for Kenyan registrars (equivalent of US medical residents). project reportread updates from the field

Providing Palliative Care in Kenya
 
Palliative care is more than hospice; it optimizes symptom management, nurtures spiritual support, and provides psychosocial services for individuals with life-threatening illnesses. The importance of symptom management is increasingly recognized worldwide; however, the need in low-income countries such as Kenya is becoming more pressing. Not only are palliative care medications scarce, but also there is a lack of specialty care providers in the country.
