Congressional Staff Tours U.S.-funded HIV and TB programs in Kenya with Global Center

The Center for Global Health Policy hosted House and Senate staffers on a week-long trip to Kenya in August designed to give Hill staff a first-hand view of key HIV and tuberculosis (TB) programs that receive U.S. funding, the progress they are making, and why U.S. support is needed. The trip included stops in Nairobi to visit hospitals and clinics that serve Kibera’s impoverished neighborhoods, meetings with key Ministry of Health officials and civil society organizations, as well as clinical site visits in the more rural parts of the country, Kisumu, Kericho and Eldoret. Check out these posts from the trip on the Center’s blog, Science Speaks:
