The Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH) is a partnership between Moi University, Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, and the AMPATH Consortium of North American universities led by Indiana University. Officially established in 2001, AMPATH began as a partnership between medical schools at Indiana University and Moi University in 1990.
The Indiana University Center for Global Health (IUCGH) coordinates the North American involvement in AMPATH by partner universities throughout North American. IUCGH holds institutional relationships with Moi University and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, and facilitates the presence of several full-time, year-round IU faculty in Eldoret, Kenya.
Virtually all of the major IU School of Medicine departments and many sub-specialty divisions partner with AMPATH including Medicine, Pediatrics, Ob/Gyn, Surgery, GI, Radiology, Pathology, Oncology, and Palliative Care.
IU’s schools of Dentistry, Public Health, Law and others also contribute to the Kenya partnership. For example, nearly 1,000 children received oral health screenings over two and a half weeks during the IU School of Dentistry’s international service learning program.
