Dr. Philip Mwalali at Baltimore took time to work on the development of the Kenya University Project (KUP) doctors plan as he talked to doctors attending the healthcare and wellness. He engaged Kenyan and Ghana doctors opening talks with about eight doctors who attended the healthcare event. He indicated that it was KUP’s deliberate effort to search, interact, build relationships and maintain partnership with a wide spectrum of Doctors.

Appreciating the services and support of the Ghanaian Doctors at the Health fair, he revealed KUP’s resolve to come up with a unique model of a health system that blends USA and Kenya practices for Health services quality improvement. To the Ghana Doctors he passed the message that “we together can advance Africa development saying that once the model is perfected in Kenya through KUP it could be replicated in Ghana and other countries in Africa”. We can, therefore, first work on Kenya model and then move on to Ghana and other countries”. In this regard he indicated that the KUP Medical team will soon start medical missions to Kenya and that the Ghanaian Doctors are most welcome to participate. 

Dr. Mwalali has had a career as a medical doctor for over 30 years, during which he served in different roles, starting a Clinician in Kenyatta National Hospital in Kenya while serving as a practicing member of the teaching faculty in the Medical School, University of Nairobi. Later on he had several tours of service with United Nations Development Program (UNDP), United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO). During these tours he led or participated in the training and development of Health professionals and Health programs’ reviews and strategy development. 

His works on Reproductive Health Assessment in nearly 10 countries in Africa was resourceful in the design of WHO Reproductive Health Needs Assessment guidelines and survey materials. He is committed to identifying good specialists in all areas of medicine to join the Medical team and to sharing his experiences with the KUP Medical team as they develop the Unique Medical Center and associated Health System.

Being a Johns Hopkins Alumni, Dr. Mwalali was excited to be part of the Health Care Fair organized for the Baltimore GoodNow Community by Dr. Nelly Kangethe, a case management specialist at John Hopkins Hospital.
