Joined by House and Senate staffers who work on global health funding issues, the Center for Global Health Policy in August will tour HIV and tuberculosis programs in Kenya that receive U.S. funding. The trip will give Hill staff a first-hand view of these programs, the progress they are making, and why U.S. support is needed. The congressional delegation will spend two days in Nairobi visiting hospitals and clinics that serve the Kibera slums (some of the world’s largest), meeting with key Ministry of Health officials, and participating in a roundtable with civil society organizations. The trip will also include clinical site visits in the more rural parts of the country: Kisumu, Kericho, and Eldoret. Stay tuned to the Global Center’s blog, Science Speaks, for posts from the trip!
