GHP Alumnus to Helm Duke-Kenya Partnership

The Duke Global Health Institute has tapped one of its own, G. Titus Ng’eno, M.D., a Duke cardiologist and a native of Kenya, to lead its longstanding partnership in the East African country.

Ng’eno, an assistant professor of medicine and global health, began his role as the Kenya Partnership Site Lead on Jan. 1. He will advance the work among Duke, Kenyan and global partners pursuing initiatives to reduce health care inequities in communicable and non-communicable diseases. In addition to DGHI, those partners include Duke’s Hubert-Yeargan Center for Global Health, the Duke-affiliated nonprofit Innovations in Healthcare and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) in Eldoret.

“It’s a great opportunity to support the collaborative education, research and service missions by Duke and our partners,” says Ng’eno. “I look forward to the pursuit of improved health outcomes and initiatives that reduce health inequities in Kenya and globally.”
