Location: Kijabe, Kenya
AIC Kijabe Hospital is a non-profit teaching hospital located about an hour outside of Nairobi, Kenya. The 350-bed facility is one of the more sophisticated hospitals in the region and draws patients, clinicians and students from all of East Africa for treatment and education.
The Health eVillages project in Kijabe is focused on the department of Anesthesiology at the AIC Hospital. Students from locations such as Somaliland and South Sudan travel to Kijabe to train in anesthesiology. Some take Health eVillages devices loaded with content back to their countries so they can continue their education.
Several devices remain in active use at Kijabe hospital. Early reports of device utilization highlight surgery that saved an infant, which was made possible by using information from Health eVillages resources.
