HJFMRI has received a series of research and non-research awards from the CDC for work in Kenya.

The Kenya Medical Research Institute’s (KEMRI) Center for Global Health Research (CGHR) campus in Western Kenya experienced operational and financial challenges that affected CDC-funded research activities.

In 2015, CDC issued two sole source cooperative agreements to HJFMRI to keep the campuses functioning. Subsequently, HJFMRI received this competitive award from the CDC to continue with the management of KEMRI’s facilities and finances, facilitate collaborations with other CDC partners to strengthen KEMRI’s research initiatives and lead various Tuberculosis, Influenza and HIV research studies being conducted in Western Kenya by the CDC.
