MedTreks Kenya

Our MedTreks Kenya program sponsors health education & training for the local health professionals in Kenya. 

The World Health Organization reports that Sub-Saharan Africa has 24% of the world’s burden of disease and only 3% of the workforce to address it. MedTreks Kenya is designed to help build local healthcare capacity through hands-on clinical skills training and medical education. MedTreks provides an ongoing, year-round educational program for health professionals in Kenya. Below is a list of educational programs that MedTreks sponsors on a regular basis:

Our Model:

Our MedTreks Kenya program is an ongoing collaboration with the sustainable public health program, Village HopeCore International. Together with our amazing teams of medical providers, we are working to build healthcare capacity in underserved regions of the world. We base our program model off three main 3 core concepts:

Education

Education is empowerment. The global health lectures and hands-on learning opportunities enhance the quality of medical education and strengthen clinical skills for medical professionals around the world, particularly in resource-limited settings

Collaboration

We believe that networking and shared learning experiences with different perspectives and healthcare backgrounds can be utilized to build stronger medical teams, improve patient care and strengthen healthcare delivery

Empowerment

Through education and collaboration, we believe our programs and courses will provide a foundation for health professionals to be empowered to get involved and promote innovation and sustainable solutions in the global health field

MedTreks recently funded and initiated a Telehealth program with HopeCore. Through VSEE Telehealth platform our faculty is now able to review cases with the HopeCore clinical teams on a weekly bases.

Health Education:

Every year our MedTreks faculty continues to grow and share their individual knowledge and expertise. Topics include maternal/child health, family planning, nutrition, dermatology, ophthalmology, emergency medicine,  orthopedics & infectious disease.
