AIHT was very visible at every stage of the conference, occupying the first booth at the main entrance to the exhibition hall, hosting a well-attended field visit SCH, presenting ten scientific papers and leading two very well attended plenary sessions. In addition, AIHT was honored to host the KOGS Chairperson, Dr. Anne Kihara and over 70 delegates that visited the Kisumu Medical and Educational Trust (KMET) and Sagam Community Hospital (SCH) (read more here). At the conference, AIHT hosted the second plenary session on February 19th, focusing on ESM-UBT and ESM-Ketamine. The plenary session was chaired by Prof. Karanja of University of Nairobi (UON). Dr. Khama Rogo began the session with a context preamble, and was followed by two excellent presentations from Monica Oguttu (KMET) and Dr. Leeya Pinder (Massachussetts General Hospital (MGH)/Harvard). Dr. Rogo tied the two innovations together at the end and invited the audience to an open discussion, challenging KOGS to rise up to the occasion and endorse the use of the two technologies to save women’s lives. Support and appreciation of the research presentations was overwhelming. This was reflected in the unanimous vote of approval by the conference endorsing the expansion of access to the two technologies in all facilities by the MOH and County governments, continued vigilance and monitoring of the process, and a progress report at the next KOGS annual conference from the counties. The plenary concluded with the presentation of a trophy to the AIHT team in recognition of their innovative and transformative work, and for making the best presentation at the conference.
