AMPATH Research Network
Under the direction of Kara Wools-Kaloustian, MD, and Winstone Nyandiko, MBChB, the AMPATH Research Network seeks to improve the health of the Kenyan population through the identification, development and dissemination of relevant and timely information on health and health care systems for use by decision-makers in medical care, public health and public policy in Kenya and other resource-constrained areas of the world.
The program’s vision is to foster a vibrant, world-class community of international researchers in health care while upholding the values of service with humility; a spirit of collaboration and partnership; integrity in relationships, mutual respect and mutual benefit in organizational partnerships with a focus on efforts to eliminate health disparities within vulnerable populations.
Robust Research Infrastructure
Since 1998, the AMPATH program has attracted more than $112 million in sponsor support and produced more than 550 peer-reviewed journal articles in high-caliber peer-reviewed journals, including the Lancet, the New England Journal of Medicine, JAIDS, and JGIM. While AMPATH research is supported by a diverse community of sponsors (including the CDC, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and USAID), more than 70 percent of total financial support comes from National Institutes of Health (NIH) research and training grants awarded to IU School of Medicine. The network continues to lead the quest for insight to persistent public health issues globally.
