INFA-MED is Christian-based institution registered in Kenya as a Trust, which began in 1995 at a meeting of representatives of several CHAK-affiliated Church Hospitals from rural Kenya, who had the vision of beginning a post-graduate training program for Family Medicine Practitioners. In Kenya and as in most of Africa, the emphasis has been on subspecialty training and care while primary care has often been ignored. Quality health care is inaccessible for much of the population of Africa. INFA-MED addresses this need through the training of Family Practitioners to provide the needed primary health care for underserved populations specifically targeting rural areas and slums of the cities.
