Grant expands Indiana University-Kenya AIDS program

  • replicate the farm model in two rural sites;
  • develop an enterprise program that will assure sustainable economic security for affected Kenyan families;
  • make the AMPATH electronic medical record system capable of replication in and outside Kenya to support patient care and the uniform reporting of results, teaching and research;
  • fund the additional laboratory services needed to serve a wide region of western Kenya.

    The grant will support a full range of educational programs for medical students, post-graduate physicians and providers of HIV care in Kenya to assure continuation of quality care.

    "We could not have made it to this point without the years of support of many private donors in Indiana," says Robert Einterz, M.D., director of the AMPATH program and the IU School of Medicine assistant dean for international affairs. "The tireless efforts of IU faculty physicians like John Sidle, Bill Tierney and Joe Mamlin have inspired us to keep at this over the past 14 years."

    Drs. Einterz, Tierney, Sidle and Mamlin currently are in Africa working with their Kenyan colleagues on the program. The co-directors of the program are Haroun N.K. Mengech, PB ChB, director of the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, B.O. Khwa-Otsyula, MB ChB, dean of Moi University Faculty of Health Sciences and Joseph P. Mamlin, M.D., professor of medicine at Moi University Faculty of Health Sciences and IU emeritus professor of medicine.
