One of the activities which began in 2014 was to broker partnerships between public hospitals in Kenya and hospitals abroad. This creates a platform where our hospitals can receive technical support and also have the opportunity to exchange ideas in different areas of health care.
After many months of dialogue, Morris Moses Foundation, courtesy of Planetree and WHO, has been able to secure a partnership between Tigoni District Hospital and Griffins Hospital in Connecticut, USA. In the month of March, a team from Griffins Hospital and a representative from Planetree will be visiting Tigoni in order to understand the different challenges they face and the scope of what is needed to bridge the gaps.
Currently, Morris Moses is in talks with other hospitals and we hope to be able to sign more partnerships in 2015.
