AMPATH Indiana-Kenya Partnership

Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH) is a partnership between Moi University, Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, and the AMPATH Consortium of universities around the world led by Indiana University (IU), the Kenyan Government, the National Hospital Insurance Fund, and so many more. AMPATH is headquartered in Eldoret, Kenya, with administrative offices for the AMPATH Consortium in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. 

The Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (Eldoret, Kenya), which serves nearly half of the Kenyan population for care, is the primary focus of the organization’s efforts in Kenya. In addition, AMPATH supports more than 300 Kenyan Ministry of Health facilities where more rural communities receive critical treatment, medication, counseling, and more.  

AMPATH is western Kenya’s first system of sustainable care and it was developed on replicable model for other regions and countries. Their focus transcends medical care and integrates medical treatment with nutrition and family support, education, counseling, jobs and financial independence that can truly impact lives for the better.
