PV0315_IndustryAtLarge

Lilly has committed $1 million to AMPATH (Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare) in Eldoret, Kenya.

AMPATH was created in response to the HIV crisis in Western Kenya in 2001. It is built on a partnership with Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and the Moi University School of Medicine in Eldoret and a consortium of North American academic health centers, led by Indiana University. AMPATH has expanded its successful HIV approach to include more diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, and cancer. It now provides healthcare services to a population of 3.5 million in Western Kenya.
