It wasn't until after he retired from the Indiana University School
of Medicine (IUSM) faculty in 1999 that Joseph Mamlin, MD, encountered what
he calls "a physician's worst nightmare."
Throughout the wards of Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret,
Kenya, beds were overflowing with young people dying of AIDS. The scene was
a far cry from what Mamlin had witnessed in Eldoret in the early 1990s as
team leader of a collaborative medical education program between IUSM and
the Moi University College of Health Sciences (MUCHS) .
