First Pictures In From Kenya
August 11, 2009
We've just received our first set of snapshots from the commission's trip to Kenya. Among those pictured are Commission co-chair Admiral William Fallon (retired) of the U.S. Navy; Karen Remley, Health Commissioner for Virginia; and Steve Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director of the Global Health Policy Center.
Although the pictures are spare, you get a clear feeling of the many difficulties that exist in Kibera. Kibera is the biggest slum in Africa - with an astounding one million residents. Disease and malnutrition are only a few of the health issues facing the struggling residents of Kibera.
We look forward to hearing more from the Commission about what they've seen - and more importantly, the lessons learned that can be applied to global health issues worldwide.
Check back for more updates - we'll post more as soon as we get them.
