McRobbie Becomes First Indiana University President to Visit Ghana, Concluding Historic Trip to Africa
Date:9/7/2013

mong the trip's major highlights was a multiple-day visit earlier this week to the historic Indiana University-Moi University AMPATH Center in Eldoret, Kenya. McRobbie is the first president to visit the AMPATH Center, which has become one of the largest academic centers for the treatment of HIV/AIDS in the world. Founded more than two decades ago by four IU physicians, AMPATH currently serves 3.5 million people in over 500 urban and rural clinical sites throughout western Kenya and has enrolled more than 160,000 individuals who have tested positive for HIV/AIDS.

While in Kenya, McRobbie signed an agreement renewing IU's partnership with Moi University. The new agreement will ensure that IU and Moi continue to work together on faculty and student exchanges and research collaboration, including activities related to AMPATH, while seeking ways to expand their partnership across multiple schools and departments.

"The care and research being done by IU and Moi University faculty at AMPATH is truly exceptional and, indeed, has the potential of revolutionizing the way health care is conducted in Africa and other developing regions of the world," McRobbie said.
