It was believed that facing the problem was too big for this partnership– too expensive and doomed to fail. Ochieng regained his health (becoming Patient #1 of what would be the AMPATH-Kenya program), and went on to partner with Bob Einterz as a cultural liason and community educator about prevention of HIV-AIDS after IU continued its work in Kenya with Moi University. In 2000, Einterz was the Indianapolis-based Director of the Indiana-Moi partnership pre-AMPATH. In 2001, despite the odds, Einterz and colleague Joe Mamlin created the Academic Model for Prevention and Treatment of HIV-AIDS, or AMPATH, to continue to treat HIV-AIDS patients in a small room of Moi University while they strove to gain financial support for this effort. Marty Moore heard about Indiana University’s potential partnership with a third-world medical school through his student, Einterz’s younger sister. Inspired by the project, he provided the seed money for the intial research of IU’s continued care of AIDS patients in Kenya. In 2007, AMPATH-Kenya reached its 50,000th HIV-positive patient. The financial, professional, personal, and academic initiative of these three global citizens demonstrated the power individuals have to spark change.
