In January six graduate students from NYU’s College of Global Public Health made a visit to Kampala and Kyabirwa, Uganda, as part of their research for developing an impact investment case for the Kyabirwa Ambulatory Surgical Facility designed by KHA. Their research is a capstone project for their graduate degree in public health, and will provide crucial background and data for Mount Sinai to support the long-term operation of the facility in Kyabirwa.
Their project is an opportune intersection between our two clients – NYU College of Global Public Health and Dr. Michael M. Marin, Chief of Surgery at Mount Sinai in New York. KHA is currently working with the College of Global Public Health to design their new home within a historic 10-story loft building near the NYU main campus. The Kyabirwa Ambulatory Surgical Facility, a project conceived by Dr. Marin, is a prototype of a replicable facility for serving resource-poor parts of the world. It is currently under construction in rural Uganda.
