The World Health Organization reports that Sub-Saharan Africa has 24% of the world’s burden of disease and only 3% of the health care workforce to address it. Through utilizing “Train-the-Trainer” model, our MedTreks program is designed to work cohesively with the HopeCore public health program in Kenya, providing them the specific training that they need to expand their healthcare services and train additional healthcare workers throughout rural Kenya.
