IU-Kenya Partnership gets $5M USAID grant

A partnership between Indiana University School of Medicine and a medical school and hospital in Kenya has received an
additional $5 million grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development to expand health care services in the African
nation.

The IU Medical School partnered with the Moi University School of Medicine and Moi Teaching and Referral
Hospital to create a health care access program that won a $60 million grant from the agency in 2007 to prevent and treat
HIV and AIDS in western Kenya.

More than 100,000 Kenyans receive HIV/AIDS treatment through the program’s system
of community health workers in 23 full-time clinics and 23 satellite clinics.

The additional funding announced
Wednesday by IU will combine with private funding to expand the network of clinics.
