African Institute for Health Transformation

In solidarity with the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Division of Global Health and Human Rights’ mission of, “caring for the world’s most vulnerable, by incubating, developing, and accelerating innovative solutions to intractable challenges confronting the poor”, the Ujenzi Charitable Trust has supported the development and launch of the African Institute for Health Transformation (AIHT) at the Sagam Community Hospital in western Kenya. AIHT has become a Center of Excellence for Healthcare delivery in East Africa and is home to an “innovations lab” led by faculty, trainees and students from the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Harvard University and other regional, international and entrepreneurial faculty. AIHT is a vital MGH/Harvard training site for the next generation of global health leaders, and is the hub from which the herein described solutions (and many others) have emerged, destined to improve lives around the world.
