A remarkable partnership between the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Moi University School of Medicine has built one of the most comprehensive and successful programmes in the world to control HIV/AIDS. Calling upon the resources of the Americans, the ingenuity of the Kenyans, and their shared determination to care for patients who had been given up for dead, the programme has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize and described as a miracle by the U.S. ambassador to Kenya. Doctors from Kenya and the United States - employing methods once considered unfeasible, such as successfully administered antiretroviral regimes - have created a model programme for saving lives and empowering the sick and impoverished. Against formidable odds, these partners demonstrate how medicine and caring can overturn preconceived notions about Africa and help wipe out the world's most devastating pandemic.
