Strengthening Maternal, Newborn & Child Health Research Training in Kenya is an application linked to the programmatic grant of the Partnership for Innovative Medical Education in Kenya (PRIME Kenya). The overarching aim of this Linked Award is to establish a Collaborative Center of Excellence in Maternal, Newborn, & Child Health (MNCH) at the University of Nairobi (UON) which will build research capacity and provide outstanding training in implementation science and applied research, health metrics and evaluation, and program leadership relevant to achieving Kenya's health development goals.
This program aims to develop and implement a global child health rotation designed to equip both U.S. and Kenyan pediatric residents with the knowledge, skills & experience to reduce health disparities among children.
PRONTO is an obstetric and neonatal emergency training program that leads multidisciplinary medical care teams through a series of skills stations, team-building activities, and low-tech, high-fidelity simulations. Participants gain the knowledge and skills necessary for the immediate diagnosis, treatment and stabilization of obstetric emergencies in resource-limited settings through to innovative training modules.
The Kenya Research Program at the University of Washington provides an academic forum to support both trainees and investigators in the planning, implementation, analysis, and presentation of research conducted in Kenya. With a 20-year history of working in Kenya, our program and numerous participating faculty members have collaborated with various institutions including University of Nairobi, Kenyatta National Hospital, Kenya Medical Research Institute, Coptic Mission, Walter Reed and more.
We seek to work with non-profit organizations like New Course to find innovative solutions to the challenges facing women, adolescents, and children in resource limited settings.
