Partnerships and Collaborations
Our close relationship with development partners has enabled us meet some of our strategic goals in the training of health professionals. We take pride in them and especially for the critical role they have played to help us reach those goals. Without their generous support, we would not have reached this far. The following are some of our partners:
The World Bank together with Beyond Zero Trust last year got into a partnership with Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) to provide funding support to ensure scaled up training of Enrolled Community Health Nurses (ECHN) over a period of two and a half (2.5) years commencing March 2017 in the 2016/2017 academic year. At least 400 students were sponsored to train for the (ECHN) course.
