Day 2: Splitting Up To Tour Kenya
August 11, 2009
This morning, the commission is splitting into three separate groups to cover more ground.
Helene Gayle's group today flew to the Nyanza province, while Ret. Admiral Fallon and his group of commissioners are traveling to the Coast Province. Although in different parts of Kenya at different facilities, both groups are studying similar issues: the impacts of U.S. investments in African health, maternal health issues, and the challenges of reaching rural African populations with health services.
Meanwhile, Mike Merson and his team are visiting the Rift Valley Province to study care projects in rural areas, as well as an innovative academic collaboration health project that is breaking new ground in HIV care. Check back in later today - many more updates to come.
