Kijabe Hospital in the New York Times

Two of the doctors from Kijabe Hospital are mentioned in this long article about antibiotic resistance in Kenya. It is a real problem, and it is one that we are fighting against in our hospital under the leadership of Dr. George. I get to work with some amazing people.

Deadly germs, Lost cures. In a Poor Kenyan Community, Cheap Antibiotics Fuel Deadly Drug-Resistant Infections.

A passionate man with wide, expressive eyes, Dr. Otieno, 36, is a driving force behind the hospital’s newly established antimicrobial stewardship program. But he expressed frustration over the lack of progress, describing overworked nurses reluctant to embrace complex hygiene protocols and the hospital’s own pharmacy, which he said continued to overprescribe antibiotics.

Kapsowar is Cool

I had the privilege of meeting with the McCurry family in Kapsowar. They are Christian Health Service Corps missionaries, and they have been her for years. It was a blessing to see them in their hospital, working hard to help meet the need of many. One of the best parts of my job is meeting with other missionaries. I have just started to make it happen here in Kenya. Hopefully I can get out to some of the nearby countries to visit our people in other places. It is always inspiring to see the good work that people are doing. You can check out the McCurry’s blog at https://mccurrysinmissions.wordpress.com/ Click on the pictures below to see them bigger.
