AMPATH (Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare) is an organizational construct led by the Indiana University School of Medicine in partnership with Moi University School of Medicine, Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and a consortium of North American universities and medical centers operating in partnership with United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It takes a systems-based approach, providing comprehensive clinical care, prevention, health promotion, research, and training in Western Kenya. In 2009, Pfizer began supporting AMPATH’s efforts to develop a Center of Excellence in Oncology, an optimal physical structure and a comprehensive oncology program which focuses on developing cost-conscious and sustainable chemotherapy regimens, radiation therapy and continued education and training and clinical trials and research support groups. This model builds on the foundation of the primary care and HIV/AIDS model AMPATH implements.
